Each school with an approved course must:
Have a well maintained facility that accommodates the students in a safe and comfortable environment conducive to learning.
Have visual aids for realism, including simulators where appropriate, which are modern and well maintained and sufficient for the number of students to be accommodated.
Give appropriate written or practical examinations in the course material to each student of such a degree of difficulty that a student who successfully completes them could reasonably assume that he or she would pass, on the first attempt, an examination prepared by the Coast Guard based upon knowledge requirements of the position or endorsement for which the student is being trained.
Keep for at least one year after the end of each student's enrollment:
Each written examination, or in the case of a practical test, a report of such test; and
A record of each student's classroom attendance.
Not change its approved curriculum unless approved, in writing, after the request for change has been submitted in writing to the Commanding Officer, National Maritime Center (NMC-42).
At any time the Officer in Charge, Marine Inspection directs, allow the Coast Guard to:
Inspect its facilities, equipment, and records, including scholastic records;
Conduct interviews and surveys of students to aid in course evaluation and improvement;
Assign personnel to observe or participate in the course of instruction; and
Supervise or administer the required examinations or practical demonstrations.
