        Records verification is required for all employees who’s positions require additional training beyond RT-130.  Employees who only require RT-130 are not required to have their records verified.  

        It is the Vendor's responsibility to select/contact a Records Verification Provider and make arrangements for training records verification. Vendors must pay for the cost for this service.
