Apply for a New Program Provider Certification

Main Headquarters Location

A main headquarters location is the primary administrative center of a certified offender education provider that is identified as the business address in the provider’s application.

Providers may have multiple main headquarters locations, and a new application for a main headquarters is required if a provider is opening a new location that is not in the same county or an adjacent county to an existing main headquarters location.

Application and Fee

To apply for a new program provider certification at a main location, please submit a completed Offender Education Program Application (PDF) with the application fee of $300 per program.

Certifications are valid for two years from the date of issue.

Designation of Administrator

All program providers must designate an administrator, who is a certified instructor authorized to act on behalf of the provider, relating to compliance with state laws and rules.

You must notify the department in writing within 30 days of any change to the designated administrator.
