65-4207.List of approved courses; survey of proposed course and institution; resurvey; notice to deficient institution; removal from list; records. (a) The board shall prepare and maintain a master list of approved courses on mental health technology: (1) Which qualify graduates thereof, if they have the other necessary qualifications provided for in this act, to be eligible to apply for a license as a mental health technician; and (2) which meet the requirements of the board for qualification under a continuing education program for licensed mental health technicians.

(b) A survey of the proposed course and of the institution applying for accreditation of the course on mental health technology shall be made by an authorized employee of the board or members of the board who shall submit a written report concerning such study. The board may contract with investigative agencies, commissions or consultants to assist the board in obtaining information about such course and institution. In entering such contracts the authority to approve such courses shall remain solely with the board.

(c) If, in the opinion of the board, the requirements as prescribed in its rules and regulations for approved courses of mental health technology are met, it shall approve the application and course and post evidence of such approval upon the master list. From time to time, as deemed necessary, the board shall cause to be made a resurvey of approved courses and shall have written reports of such resurvey submitted. If the board determines that any previously approved course is not maintaining the content required by this act and by the rules and regulations prescribed, a notice thereof shall be given immediately to the institution specifying the nature and extent of the deficiency. A failure to correct such condition or conditions to the satisfaction of the board within one year following the notice shall cause the course to be removed from the master list of approved courses on mental health technology. Personnel conducting approved courses shall maintain accurate and current records showing in full the theoretical and practical instruction given to all students.
