65-6129c. Training officer's certificate; application; requirements; renewal; denial, revocation, suspension. (a) Application for a training officer's certificate shall be made to the emergency medical services board upon forms provided by the executive director. The board may grant a training officer's certificate to an applicant who: (1) Is an attendant certified pursuant to K.S.A. 65-6119, 65-6120 and 65-6121, and amendments thereto, physician, physician assistant, advanced practice registered nurse or professional nurse; (2) successfully completes an initial course of training approved by the board; (3) passes an examination prescribed by the board; (4) is appointed by a sponsoring organization approved by the board; and (5) has paid a fee established by the board.

(b) A training officer's certificate shall expire on the expiration date of the attendant's certificate if the training officer is an attendant or on the expiration date of the physician's, physician assistant's, advanced practice registered nurse's or professional nurse's license if the training officer is a physician, physician assistant, advanced practice registered nurse or professional nurse. A training officer's certificate may be renewed for the same period as the attendant's certificate or the physician's, physician assistant's, advanced practice registered nurse's or professional nurse's license upon payment of a fee as prescribed by rules and regulations and upon presentation of satisfactory proof that the training officer has successfully completed continuing education prescribed by the board and is certified as an attendant certified pursuant to K.S.A. 65-6119, 65-6120 and 65-6121, and amendments thereto, physician, physician assistant, advanced practice registered nurse or professional nurse. The board may prorate to the nearest whole month the fee fixed under this subsection as necessary to implement the provisions of this subsection.

(c) A training officer's certificate may be denied, revoked, limited, modified or suspended by the board or the board may refuse to renew such certificate if such individual:

(1) Fails to maintain certification or licensure as an attendant certified pursuant to K.S.A. 65-6119, 65-6120 and 65-6121, and amendments thereto, physician, physician assistant, advanced practice registered nurse or professional nurse;

(2) fails to maintain support of appointment by a sponsoring organization;

(5) has demonstrated incompetence or engaged in unprofessional conduct as defined by rules and regulations adopted by the board;

(6) has violated or aided and abetted in the violation of any provision of this act or the rules and regulations promulgated by the board; or

(7) has been convicted of any state or federal crime that is related substantially to the qualifications, functions and duties of a training officer or any crime punishable as a felony under any state or federal statute and the board determines that such individual has not been sufficiently rehabilitated to warrant public trust. A conviction means a plea of guilty, a plea of nolo contendere or a verdict of guilty. The board may take disciplinary action pursuant to this section when the time for appeal has elapsed, or after the judgment of conviction is affirmed on appeal or when an order granting probation is made suspending the imposition of sentence.

(d) The board may deny, revoke, limit, modify or suspend a training officer certificate or the board may refuse to renew such certificate in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act.

(e) If a person who previously was certified as a training officer applies for a training officer's certificate within two years of the date of its expiration, the board may grant a certificate without the person completing an initial course of training or taking an examination if the person complies with the other provisions of subsection (a) and completes continuing education requirements.
