Part IV
The Licensing Process

A. The programmatic regulations require both general and specific training in various subject areas. The department provides preapplication consultation, ongoing technical assistance and consultation, and formal training sessions. The department's licensing representatives will provide assistance to any person seeking information about obtaining a license and information about initial and ongoing training requirements.

B. Applicants for licensure shall complete a prelicensure orientation program that focuses on health and safety standards, and residents' rights where applicable, offered through or approved by the department. The commissioner may, at his discretion, waive the orientation requirement or issue a license conditioned upon the owner's or administrator's completion of the required training.

EXCEPTIONS: The following persons are exempt from the requirements of prelicensure training:

1. An applicant who has previously owned or managed a facility in satisfactory compliance with regulations; and

2. Applicants for adult day care centers and child welfare agencies if notified by the department that such training is unavailable.
