31. The executive committee shall, upon the admissions committee’s recommendation:(1) issue a certificate of achievement; or
(2) refuse to issue a certificate of achievement, and determine the training activities that must be repeated to allow the candidate to reach the required levels.
However, the executive committee must give the candidate the opportunity to be heard prior to rendering a decision pursuant to subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph. In that event, the secretary of the Order must give notice to the candidate in writing of the executive committee’s intention, informing him of the reasons and of his right to be heard. The candidate shall have 30 days following receipt of the notice to avail himself of his right by sending his comments in writing, together with copies of all documents he intends to supply in support of his file.
