  ( Article 16.3 added by Stats. 2004, Ch. 428, Sec. 3. )


(a) Each self-service storage agent shall provide an insurance training program for its employees that shall meet the following minimum standards:

(1) Each employee shall receive instruction about the types of insurance specified in Section 1758.75 that are offered for sale to prospective renters.

(2) Each employee shall receive training about ethical sales practices.

(3) Each employee shall receive training about the disclosures to be given to prospective renters pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1758.76.

(b) Training materials used by or on behalf of the self-service storage facility to train its endorsee shall be submitted to the department at the time the applicant applies for a license under this article and whenever modified thereafter. Any changes to previously submitted training materials shall be submitted to the department with the changes highlighted 30 days prior to their use by the licensee. Training materials and changes in those materials submitted to the department pursuant to this subdivision shall be deemed approved for use by the company unless the company is notified by the department to the contrary. Failure by a self-service storage facility to submit training materials or changes for department review, or use of unapproved or disapproved training materials shall constitute grounds for the denial of an application for license, nonrenewal of a license, or a suspension of a license, as appropriate.

(c) An employee may not be endorsed to a self-service storage agent license unless that employee is 18 years of age or older.

(d) The self-service storage facility, at the time it submits its self-service storage agent license application pursuant to Section 1758.71, shall establish a list of the names of all endorsees to its self-service storage agent license. The list shall be maintained by the self-service storage facility in a form prescribed by, or format acceptable to, the commissioner, and shall be updated annually. The list shall be retained by the self-service storage facility for three years and made available to the commissioner for review and inspection.
