Approximately two weeks after the end of the renewal period, the Department will randomly select a sample of the renewal applications for audit of continuing competency requirements.  Each licensee selected for audit must produce documentation of the continuing competency activities.
 
If a licensee had circumstances beyond their control that prevented them from meeting the continuing competency requirements, they may request a waiver at the time of renewal.  The waiver options appear on the renewal application and include the following:
  • Being licensed within the 24 months immediately preceding the license expiration date;
  • Having served in the regular armed forces of the United States during part of the current renewal period;
  • Having suffered a serious or disabling illness or physical disability which prevented completion of the continuing competency requirements during the current renewal period; or
  • Having other circumstances beyond their control that prevented completion of the continuing competency requirements during the current renewal period.
