490:1-9-1. General provisions for continuing education programs
(a) In order to receive Board recognition and continuing education credit, continuing education programs shall be submitted to the Board for approval prior to presentation as indicated under this Chapter.
(b) All continuing education programs submitted to the Board for its evaluation and possible 'approval' for purposes of granting Oklahoma continuing education credit hours shall be submitted with a $55.00 per credit hour, non-refundable fee. Approval will be granted only for specific programs for specific dates of presentation. The Board shall waive this fee for programs sponsored by State or federal agencies. Recurring presentations also require Board approval, but may be considered and approved by the Board based upon a report of program changes from the previously-approved program.
(c) The Board may withdraw approval for continuing education credit should subsequent information come to its attention that program content differed from that approved.
(d) Sponsors shall be responsible for obtaining satisfactory documentation of attendance and submission of the attendance records to the Board.
(e) All programs approved by the National Continuing Education Review Service (NCERS), National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB) that receive a NCERS/NAB approval number will be presumptively accepted by the Board for purposes of meeting Oklahoma's annual continuing education requirements.
(f) The Board may approve, sponsor and/or conduct its own educational and training programs for continuing education credit if such programs meet the criteria established in this Chapter.
(g) The Board reserves the right to monitor any and all approved programs.
(h) Programs that deal specifically with internal affairs of an organization do not qualify for continuing education hours.
(i) Programs from the Administrator University may qualify for continuing education hours if they meet the criteria outlined in this Chapter and have been so approved by the Board.
(j) Sponsors, at their discretion, may award partial credit for attendees who they deem have been late, left early, or otherwise not participated in the full activities of the program. The Board approval for a program is for "up to" the number of hours approved and it is the responsibility of the sponsor to judiciously grant credit. This also allows the sponsor to award fewer hours in the event of unplanned changes to a program such as a scheduled speaker being unable to make a presentation. Failure to protect the integrity of the hours approved on the part of the sponsor could result in future denial of program approval by the Board.
