20:69:11:04. Requirements -- Exceptions. A licensee who has been licensed by the commission for one year or more preceding the date by which continuing or postlicensing education requirements must be completed must meet the continuing or postlicensing education requirements. An inactive licensee is not required to meet the requirements. An inactive licensee who wishes to activate the individual's license must complete 24 hours of continuing education within the licensee's current licensing period or within two years preceding the licensee's current licensing period. A licensee whose license is placed on inactive status during either of the first two license cycles after initial licensure must complete the postlicensing education required during that cycle to activate the license. Courses taken to activate a license may not be used to renew a license. A nonresident licensee licensed in this state is not required to meet this requirement. However, a nonresident licensee whose license in this state is on inactive status shall submit, prior to activating that license, a certificate of licensure from the licensing agency of the state where the nonresident licensee maintains residency, stating the nonresident's license is on active status and in good standing and that no complaint is pending.
