(A) Primary Instructors (defined in Regulation 1001)
All primary instructors shall meet the minimum training standard prior to instructing in the specialized subject. (This also includes instructors of specialized instructor training courses.)
(B) Instructors (non-primary)
All non-primary instructors who on or after July 1, 2002, are 1) First assigned to instruct in a specialized subject area or 2) transfer to a different training institution and are assigned to instruct in a specialized subject area shall meet the minimum training standard prior to instructing in the specialized subject.
