The authorized representative of the training program may submit a new application for the secretary's consideration.
(7) Training and testing records must be kept for a minimum of three years. The secretary may audit the records at any time.
(8) The authorized representative of an approved training program shall notify the secretary in writing of all changes with respect to information provided in the application, including changes in instructors, within thirty days of such changes.

The authorized representative of the training program must provide proof that the deficiencies which resulted in withdrawal of the secretary's approval have been corrected before requesting reapproval.
