2) Training received through a union, college, contractor or third-party program, other than manufacturer provided training, must be approved by the Board in advance of the training. The individual requesting the approval must submit to the Board information on the training that includes, but is not limited to, the course outline, course objectives, hours granted, and instructor's name and qualifications. The Board will not credit training that has not received prior approval.
