In order to promote public health and safety, the Department of Community Health and the Environment through its Divisions of Public Health and of Environmental Health may from time to time offer programs to train and certify individuals who seek to acquire certain skills or professional capabilities. These programs may include, but are not limited to, training in: cardio-pulmonary resuscitation or "CPR"; the use of automatic external defibrillators or "AEDs"; the administration of first aid; training in basic food sanitation; training in safe food handling such as ServSafe, and training in managing risks posed by bloodborn pathogens. Training programs leading to certifications shall be offered in accordance with certification requirements of the appropriate certifying body or organization, such as the American Red Cross or the American Lung Association.
[Ord. No. 12-058 §3, 8-3-2012]
A. 
The Department is authorized to establish fees to recover the costs of training programs for skills or certifications authorized by Section 239.001 as provided in this Section.
1. 
Fees shall be no more than the sum of:
a. 
The actual costs of the course materials and test materials required for the training program offered; and
b. 
The costs of conducting that training program, namely:
(1) 
The costs of staff time in conducting that program; and
(2) 
The costs of any certifications required to be issued to trainees who successfully complete the training program.
2. 
In January of each year, the Department shall calculate or re-calculate:
a. 
The costs of staff time for conducting each training program; and
b. 
The portion of fees charged to trainees for recovering those costs, based on anticipated or average enrollments in training programs, or on another reasonable basis.
3. 
Because the costs of course and test materials and of certifications may vary with each training course offered, the Department shall provide written notice on enrollment fees to all parties seeking to enroll in its training programs before they enroll.
