§ 35.383. Waiver of continuing education requirement.

 (a)  The Commission may waive all or part of the continuing education requirement of §  35.382 (relating to requirement) upon proof that the standard license holder seeking the waiver is unable to fulfill the requirement because of illness, emergency or hardship. The following are examples of situations in which hardship waivers will be granted.

   (1)  A standard license holder who seeks to renew a current license that was initially issued within 6 months of the biennial license period for which renewal is sought will be deemed eligible, on the basis of hardship, for a full waiver of the continuing education requirement.

   (2)  A standard license holder who seeks to renew a current license that was reactivated from noncurrent status within 6 months of the biennial license period for which renewal is sought will be deemed eligible, on the basis of hardship, for a full waiver of the continuing education requirement.

   (3)  A standard license holder who is a qualified continuing education instructor will be deemed eligible, for the waiver of 1 hour of continuing education for each hour of actual classroom instruction in an approved continuing education topic that the instructor is qualified to teach. Duplicate hours of instruction in the same topic during the same biennial license period will not be considered for waiver purposes.

 (b)  Requests to waive the continuing education requirement must be filed with the Commission on or before March 31 of the renewal year unless the applicant proves to the satisfaction of the Commission that it was impracticable to do so.
