§296.4. Denial or Cancellation of Registration as an Electrician Trainee; Appeals.

(a) The Chief DAS may for good cause deny an individual registration as an Electrician Trainee Registrant or cancel an individual's registration as an Electrician Trainee Registrant. The Chief DAS shall provide the individual with written notice of the denial or cancellation at the address shown on the application for registration or other address known to the DAS. Good cause shall be deemed to exist if the individual does not meet the requirements for registration or has committed gross negligence or fraud, or engaged in repeated acts of negligence during the performance of activities subject to the registration or if the person obtained registration through mistake, misrepresentation or fraud.

(b) An applicant or registrant may appeal the denial or cancellation of registration to the Chief DAS. The appeal shall be in writing and made within 30 days of service of the notice. The appellant shall have the burden of establishing that appellant qualifies for registration. The Chief DAS shall rule on the appeal, and shall have discretion to hold a hearing on the appeal before the Chief DAS or his or her authorized representative prior to the ruling. Any hearing must commence within 90 days after the DAS receives the applicant's appeal of the denial of registration. The ruling shall be in writing and shall be sent to the appellant within 90 days after the DAS receives the appeal, or within 90 days after the last day of hearing, whichever is later. The decision of the Chief DAS shall be final, except for judicial review provided by law.
