1. An inactive licensee is able to avoid the continuing education requirement by completing which of the following requirements? 

 

A. Practiced in a volunteer capacity for a minimum of 350 hours per year that the license was inactive

B. Taken and passed the licensing examination

C. Taught a continuing education course that spanned a duration of 8 hours

D. Payment of the reactivation fee

 

CORRECT ANSWER: B

An individual who has an inactive license and seeking reactivation can avoid the requirement of 10 continuing education hours per year that the license was inactive by taking and passing the licensing examination. A maximum of 5 lifetime attempts will be given to each individual to achieve this.

INCORRECT ANSWERS: 

A. With the status of the license being inactive, practice in any capacity would be prohibited as an active license if required. 

 

C. With the licensee having an inactive license this may prevent the individual from teaching classes. Even if it was allowed, 8 hours of teaching would not meet the required 10 hours per year that the license was inactive. It would not completely allow the licensee to avoid the continuing education requirements. 

 

D. Payment of the reactivation fee is a requirement when changing a license from inactive to active. However, the continuing education requirements would continue to be present despite this requirement being met.
