Failure to timely submit to the superintendent the corrected application or additional information requested by the superintendent shall constitute cause for the superintendent to void the application and impose a forfeiture of the application fee.

(C) The course will be approved for offering to students upon the superintendents issuance of a course certification number. A course certification number is valid for three years from the issuance of the course certification number. An application for a continuing education course shall be submitted to the superintendent for approval at least thirty days prior to its proposed initial offering.

(D) For purposes of this rule, a course hour shall consist of sixty minutes. A student must be physically present for at least ninety per cent of the course instruction in order to receive credit for the course. A course hour applies to instruction held in a classroom setting. No offering will be approved in which classroom instruction exceeds more than eight classroom hours in any one day. Successful completion of an examination is not required in order to receive credit for completing a continuing education course.

(E) A course provider shall provide a course certificate to the student within thirty days after the student successfully completes the course. Course certificates shall include at minimum: the name of the class; the name of the sponsoring entity or course provider; the name of the student; the address of the student; the course certification number provided by the superintendent; and the date the class was completed by the student. A course provider must submit to the superintendent the roster of students within fifteen days after the course has been completed.

(F) The superintendent may deny or withdraw approval of a continuing education course if; the course does not meet the requirements in division (A)(2)(a) of section 5713.012 of the Revised Code; rule 1301:11-7-02 or 1301:11-7-03 of the Administrative Code; the course does not meet the requirements found in this rule; or the course provider, sponsoring entity, course administrator or course instructor have previously failed to comply with any of these requirements or have been found not to be of honest, truthful and good reputation. For purposes of this rule, the superintendent may consider past convictions or disciplinary sanctions issued by other professional entities or administrative agencies when evaluating the honest, truthful and good reputation requirement. The superintendent must issue to the course provider or sponsoring entity a denial notice or a withdrawal of approval notice, pursuant to section 119.07 of the Revised Code, stating the reasons for the denial or the withdrawal of approval. The superintendents decision related to this paragraph may be appealed to the Ohio real estate appraiser board.
