Part III. Renewal of License

18VAC155-20-160. Procedures for renewal.

A. Licenses issued under this chapter shall expire two years from the last day of the month in which they were issued as indicated on the license.

B. The board will mail a renewal notice to the licensee at the address on file with the board outlining the fee and procedures for license renewal. Failure to receive written notice from the department does not relieve the licensee from the requirement to renew his license. If the license holder fails to receive the renewal notice, a copy of the license may be submitted with evidence of completion of the continuing education requirements and the appropriate fee.

C. The date the required fee is received by the department or its agent will be used to determine whether a penalty fee or the requirement for reinstatement of a license is applicable.

D. As a condition of renewal or reinstatement all individuals holding a license shall be required to satisfactorily complete eight hours of continuing education from a provider approved by the board in accordance with the provisions of this chapter, except that no continuing education shall be required for the first renewal after the issuance of the initial license to an individual.
