4742.05 Obtaining and maintaining certification.

(A) A career school that holds a valid certificate of registration from the state board of career colleges and schools may apply to the state board of education for certification of a basic course of emergency service telecommunicator training or of continuing education coursework in emergency service telecommunicator training. The state board of education shall prescribe the form of the application.

(B) Upon receipt of an application, the state board of education shall review it and consider whether the proposed course or coursework meets the requirements of division (A) or (B) of section 4742.03 of the Revised Code concerning course length and content. If the proposed course or coursework meets those requirements, the state board of education shall issue a certification of that fact to the career school. Inclusion of on-site verifiable electronic training as part of a proposed basic or continuing education course shall not be a reason for the state board to deny certification.

(C) If, after receiving a certification from the state board of education under this section, the career school changes the approved course or coursework, the prior certification is canceled and the career school shall apply to the state board of education for certification of the changed course or coursework.
