Current through February, 2022

A continuing education provider shall not engage in any of the following acts:

(1) Provide any information to the public or to a prospective student, which is false, misleading, or deceptive. Information is "misleading" when there may be a possibility that it will deceive the class of persons whom it intended to influence;
(2) Use any name, other than the full name or the trade name registered with the commission, for advertising or publicity purposes;
(3) Advertise that it is "recommended," "endorsed," "approved," or "accredited" by the commission. A continuing education provider may indicate that it is "registered" with the commission to conduct courses to assist the licensee in obtaining the necessary continuing education hours for license renewal;
(4) Advertise that it is endorsed by business establishments, organizations, or individuals engaged in the kind of work for which training is given until written evidence of this fact is filed with the commission;
(5) Make or imply any guarantee of employment or income to any student or prospective student unless the continuing education provider can in fact guarantee employment or income and the continuing education provider does so in writing;
(6) Advertise a course which has not been certified by the commission, unless the advertisement clearly states that it is a "proposed" or "tentative" offering, subject to the certification by the commission; or
(7) Collect from any prospective student any tuition or advance deposits unless the continuing education course is certified by the commission.
