What if I make a false statement or a material misrepresentation on an application, an employment report or a trainee certificate?

(1) A person making a false statement or material misrepresentation on an application, statement of hours, or signed statement to the department may be referred to the county prosecutor for criminal prosecution. The department may also file a civil action under chapter 18.106 RCW and may revoke or suspend a certificate under chapter 18.106 RCW.
(2) The department may file a civil action under chapter 18.106 RCW and may revoke or suspend a certificate of competency under chapter 18.106 RCW for inaccurate or false reporting of continuing education hours.
(3) If the department determines that a course sponsor has issued an inaccurate or incomplete course application or attendance/completion roster, the department may suspend or revoke the course approval and deny future approval of a continuing education course(s) by the course sponsor.
(4) The department may file a civil action under chapter 18.106 RCW against both the trainee and the contractor, apprentice training director, or other entity verifying the training hours and may subtract the falsified hours of employment from a trainee's total hours if the department determines a false statement or material misrepresentation has been made in an affidavit of experience.
