§ 5.76. Waiver or exceptions to continuing education requirements.

 (a)  The Board may grant a waiver of all or a portion of the continuing education required for biennial registration in cases of emergency, illness or undue hardship. A licensee requesting a waiver from the Board shall state, in writing, the reasons why the licensee is unable to comply with continuing education requirements. Before making a determination, the Board may require a personal appearance by the licensee. If the Board finds probable cause that the licensee is unable to practice with reasonable skill and safety to patients because of the same condition for which he is granted a waiver, the Board may, after notice and hearing, suspend or revoke the license or place restrictions on the license limiting the scope of the licensee’s practice, in accordance with section 506(a)(8) and (b) of the act (63 P. S. §  625.506(a)(8) and (b)).

 (b)  The Board may grant approval for courses which have met all of the academic requirements established by the act and this chapter, despite a procedural defect in the approval process, when a licensee requests an exception, in writing, setting forth that the procedural defects are beyond his control as well as reasons why failure to approve the course would create a hardship for the licensee.
