(a) In order to show that those correctional officers and security supervisors required to comply with S.L. 2001-378 s .l.(2) are in compliance, the private correctional service provider shall submit its training curriculum and all relevant documents related to training to the North Carolina Department of Correction.

(b) The North Carolina Department of Correction shall review the training curriculum and related information and shall certify in writing to the private correctional service provider that it meets or does not meet the standards of the Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission. Should the Department determine that the curriculum fails to meet the standards, it shall provide direction related to the problem areas and allow the private provider to resubmit only those portions in question.

(c) The Department of Correction shall verify that correctional officers and security supervisors working for private correctional service providers have met the training standards. To accomplish this all private correctional service providers shall submit a "Verification of Training Standards" checklist for each correctional officer and security supervisor to the department. In addition to the applicant's name, social security number, position title and effective date of employment, the checklist shall verify that all training standards contained within the approved curriculum have been completed. The verification of training form shall contain an authorizing signature line and a space to record the date.

(d) Upon receipt of the Verification of Training Standards checklist by the Department of Correction, departmental staff shall review the checklist and respond in a memorandum to the private correctional service provider as to whether the individual applicant meets or does not meet the training standards.

(e) Once approved, future changes to the training curriculum that could affect its approval shall be submitted to the Department of Correction for additional review.
