8VAC20-543-40 - biennial approval
 

Program noncompleters should not be included in candidate passing rates.  The required 80% passing rate should only include program completers.  Also, exceptions should be considered when negative program approval decisions are based on fewer than 10 program completers, especially when small numbers are reported for critical shortage areas.
