Kansas Statutes > Chapter 65 > Article 61 > § 65-6129b - Instructor-coordinator's certificate; application; requirements; disposition of fees; renewal of certificate
Current as of: 2009
(a) Application for an instructor-coordinator's certificate shall be made to the board upon forms provided by the administrator. The board may grant an instructor-coordinator's certificate to an attendant who: (1) Has served as an attendant in the emergency medical services field during the preceding 12 months prior to applying for such certificate; (2) has made application within one year after successfully completing the training, approved by the board, in instructing and coordinating attendant training programs; (3) has passed an examination prescribed by the board; and (4) has paid a fee as prescribed by rules and regulations of the board.
(b) The board may grant an instructor-coordinator's certificate to a physician or a professional nurse who: (1) Has made application within one year after successfully completing the training, approved by the board, in instructing and coordinating attendant training programs; (2) has passed an examination prescribed by the board; and (3) has paid a fee as prescribed by rules and regulations of the board.
(c) An instructor-coordinator's certificate shall expire on the expiration date of the attendant's certificate if the instructor-coordinator is an attendant or on the expiration date of the physician's or professional nurse's license if the instructor is a physician or professional nurse. An instructor-coordinator's certificate may be renewed for the same period as the attendant's certificate or the physician's or professional nurse's license upon payment of a fee as prescribed by rule and regulation of the board and upon presentation of satisfactory proof that the instructor-coordinator has successfully completed continuing education as prescribed by the board. The board may prorate to the nearest whole month the fee fixed under this subsection as necessary to implement the provisions of this subsection.
(d) An instructor-coordinator's certificate may be denied, revoked, limited, modified or suspended by the board or the board may refuse to renew such certificate if such individual:
(1) Does not hold an attendant's certificate or a physician's or professional nurse's license;
(2) has made misrepresentations intentionally in obtaining a certificate or renewing a certificate;
(3) has demonstrated incompetence or engaged in unprofessional conduct as defined by rules and regulations adopted by the board;
(4) has violated or aided and abetted in the violation of any provision of this act or rules and regulations adopted by the board; or
(5) has been convicted of any state or federal crime that is related substantially to the qualifications, functions and duties of an instructor-coordinator or any crime punishable as a felony under any state or federal statute, and the board determines that such individual has not been sufficiently rehabilitated to warrant the public trust. A conviction means a plea of guilty, a plea of nolo contendere or a verdict of guilty. The board may take disciplinary action pursuant to this section when the time for appeal has elapsed, or after the judgment of conviction is affirmed on appeal or when an order granting probation is made suspending the imposition of sentence.
(e) The board may limit, modify, revoke or suspend a certificate or the board may refuse to renew such certificate in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act.
(f) All fees received pursuant to this section shall be remitted to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the state general fund.
(g) If a person who was previously certified as an instructor-coordinator applies for an instructor-coordinator certificate within two years of the date of its expiration, the board may grant a certificate without the person completing the training or passing an examination if the person complies with the other provisions of subsection (a) or (b) and completes continuing education requirements prescribed by the board.
