Unlike other KCCRT members, KYLEAP applicants are not required to submit to a criminal background check.
Once the application and supporting documentation has been received, the applicant will be scheduled for an interview. The interview will take place with a panel of KCCRT representatives,, including at least one peer member. Interviews may be held in person, by conference call or by video conferencing. Upon the conclusion of the interview, the panel will make a recommendation on whether or not the applicant is recommended to attend the four-day training.
Upon completion of the training a recommendation on the applicant's membership will be made to the Executive Director .
