18VAC25-21-250. Continuing Education Requirements for Renewal or Reinstatement.

A. Licensees whose licenses expire or who apply to reinstate shall be required to comply with the continuing education provisions of this chapter, excluding any auctioneer licensed by the board for 25 years or more and who is 70 years of age or older at the time of license expiration pursuant to § 54.1-603.1 A of the Code of Virginia.

B. Licensees subject to the provisions of this section are required to complete at least six continuing education credit hours of board-approved continuing education courses for any license renewal or reinstatement.

A Virginia licensee that is also licensed in another state with which the board shares a reciprocal agreement may use board-approved continuing education in that state to meet the required six hours of continuing education for Virginia, provided that the reciprocal jurisdiction affords the same privilege to Virginia licensees.

C. 1. Each licensee applying for renewal shall certify that he has met the continuing education requirements of this chapter. Only continuing education courses completed during the license period immediately prior to the expiration date of the license shall be acceptable in order to renew the license.

2. Licensees shall maintain records of completion of continuing education credit hours for two years from the date of expiration of the license for which the continuing education credit hours are being used to renew the license. Individuals shall provide such records to the board or its duly authorized agents upon request.

3. Continuing education credit hours utilized to satisfy the continuing education requirements to renew a license shall be valid only for that renewal and shall not be accepted for any subsequent renewal cycles or reinstatement.

D. 1. Each individual applying for reinstatement shall provide, as part of his reinstatement application, evidence of compliance with the continuing education requirements of this chapter. The completion date of continuing education courses submitted in support of a reinstatement application shall not be more than two years old as of the date a complete reinstatement application is received by the board.

2. Continuing education credit hours utilized to satisfy the continuing education requirements in order to reinstate a license shall be valid only for that reinstatement and shall not be accepted for any subsequent renewal cycles or reinstatement.

E. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection C of this section, continuing education hours earned during a licensing renewal cycle to satisfy the continuing education requirements of the preceding licensing renewal cycle shall be valid only for that preceding license renewal cycle and shall not be accepted for any subsequent renewal cycles or reinstatement.
