(C) The course shall be a minimum of four hours and expires five years from the date of completion.
(D) After review of the crematory operator permit refresher course program procedures and materials, the board may approve the program or return it to the provider for revision. If a certification program has been returned for revision, the board will indicate the reasons for the denial and the crematory operator permit refresher course may not be offered by the provider until approved by the board.
