CONTINUING EDUCATION

 

Mr. Hetrick requested clarification from the Board regarding renewals and continuing education. The board determined that if an operator answers “yes” to the CE question on the renewal form and does not respond to an audit, it will be sent to investigations.

 

If an operator does not respond to a random audit and the license expires, there will be no action taken. If the operator wants to re-instate his license he must pay all renewal fees, the re-instatement fee, and submit six hours of CE for each year the license was expired.

 

An operator must submit a waiver of CE request at the time of renewal or before renewal.

 

The Board directed the Bureau to investigate the possibility of a record keeping program for continuing education.
