6 CSR 10-5.010 This amendment updates the overall administrative rule to provide schools an expedited pathway for offering short courses of instruction for personal or professional development or continuing education credit without the requirement to complete a more comprehensive and costly program review process. The amendment defines test preparation as it relates to exemption and clarifies language related to physical presence as an exemption criterion, clarifies the requirement for information disclosures pertinent to operation of a certified school, and clarifies language related to two (2) year certification, personnel qualifications, and competency-based credit.

Although an annual fee will be charged for schools opting to consolidate, it is anticipated schools will realize a net cost savings as each program or course will no longer be submitted along with individual review fees for each.

The proposed amendment also defines and clarifies the exemption criteria related to test preparation programs.

6 CSR 10-3.010 The department is adding new subsections 6(C) and (6)(D) to implement the requirements of section 173.1150 RSMo.
