    (6) A training program must maintain a passing rate on certified nursing assistant examination for its graduates of not less than 10% below the state average as reported annually. If a program’s passing rate drops below the standard for 12 months, the program must be reviewed by the Board. The Board shall place the program on probation, and if the passing rate does not meet the standard within one year, the Board shall rescind the program approval. If a program has no test takers for one calendar year, the program shall be considered abandoned and program approval shall be rescinded. A one year extension of probation for good cause may be granted by the Board. Good cause may consist of acts of nature, serious illness or death of essential faculty or administrator or any other circumstance which creates an impediment for the program.
