|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting today, the Board considered the petition and comments received and decided to retain the current requirements. While members appreciated the petitioner's point of view, it was their conclusion that the requirement of one-year of full-time employment as an administrator is the minimal amount of experience necessary to adequately serve as a preceptor for an AIT.
Additionally, the Board did not accept the request to require facilities to verify employment or to accept other means of verification. This Board does not license or regulate the facilities, only the administrators of those facilities, and acceptance of pay stubs may not adequately provide evidence of full-time employment.
