After completion of the course, the providing entity shall submit sign-in sheets to the Department for all sessions, which require the following information listed for each attendee:

All programs shall be presented as submitted unless changes have been approved prior to presentation. Changes which occur during the presentation shall be submitted to the Department within ten (10) days of the training session for review by the Department. Failure to obtain approval of changes may result in loss of certification.
