Certified and exempt programs.

(1) The department must not license a school-age program that is legally exempt from licensing pursuant to RCW 43.216.010(2). However, if a school-age program requests to become certified by the department, the department must apply all licensing rules to the otherwise exempt program. In such a case, the department must apply licensing rules equally to licensed and certified school-age programs.

(b) Certified by the DOD; or
(c) Approved by the OSPI.
(3) A school-age program exempt from licensing pursuant to RCW 43.216.010(2) must use the department's form to submit their exempt status.
