Each trainee in a basic corrections academy shall receive certification only upon full and successful completion of the basic academy process as prescribed by the Washington state criminal justice training commission. The performance of each trainee shall be evaluated as follows:
(a) Scholastic achievement. A standardized examination process shall be utilized by each corrections academy sponsored or conducted by the commission, in evaluating the level of scholastic achievement of each trainee. Such process shall include the application of a minimum passing score for written examinations in each academy, as determined by the rules of the commission and include the availability of a retesting procedure.
(b) Skill proficiency. A standardized examination process shall be utilized by each corrections academy sponsored or conducted by the commission, in evaluating the level of skill proficiency of each trainee. Such process shall include application of a minimum passing score of seventy percent for demonstration of all skill proficiencies identified by the commission and include the availability of a retesting procedure.
(c) Employing agencies will be notified of test results within twenty-four hours in the case of test failure. Agency authorization for retesting must occur before the retest examination is conducted. Subsequent failure of the retest will result in commission notification to the employing agency executive director, or designee, and removal of the affected trainee from the academy.
In the event of retest failure, and subsequent academy removal, a letter of training attendance will be sent to the employing agency and a certificate of completion will not be awarded. The affected trainee will not be eligible for reentry into that same academy for a three-month period, if continually employed by the same agency.
Hours of successfully completed training will be recorded by the commission in the trainee's commission training record.
