32-2816. Certificates; fee; terms; registration; renewal; cancellation; waiver
A. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a certificate issued under this section is valid for two years.
B. The department may renew a certificate for two years on payment of a renewal fee established by the director and submission of a renewal application containing information the department requires to show that the applicant for renewal is a technologist in good standing. The applicant for renewal shall also present evidence satisfactory to the department of having completed the required continuing education in radiologic technology within the preceding two years. If a radiologic technologist is certified by the American registry of radiologic technologists or nuclear medicine technology certification board, that person must satisfy the continuing education requirements of this subsection by providing the department with evidence of the technologist's good standing and current certification with that registry.
C. A certificate holder who fails to renew the certificate on or before the certificate's expiration as prescribed in subsection B of this section shall pay a penalty fee of fifty dollars for late renewal.
D. A certificate holder who does not renew a certificate within thirty days after the certificate expires and who continues the active practice of radiologic technology without adequate cause satisfactory to the department is subject to censure, reprimand or denial of right to renew the certificate pursuant to section 32-2821.
E. On the request of a certificate holder in good standing, the department shall cancel a certificate.
F. The department shall waive the renewal fee if a certificate holder submits an affidavit to the department stating that the certificate holder is retired from the practice of radiologic technology or wishes to be placed on inactive status. A retired or inactive technologist who practices is subject to the same penalties imposed pursuant to this chapter on a person who practices radiologic technology without a certificate.
G. The department may reinstate a technologist on retired or inactive status on payment of the renewal fee pursuant to subsection B of this section.
