Chapter 681-13 CONTINUING EDUCATION

Rule 681-13-.01 Continuing Education for Renewal

Whenever any licensee makes application for renewal of a license, the licensee shall attest on the renewal application that he or she has completed the required Division approved Continuing Education within nine (9) months prior to the renewal of the license, and that he or she can provide proof of completion of the required Continuing Education course at the Division's request.

Rule 681-13-.02 Hour Requirement

Renewal of a license shall not be granted unless the licensee submits satisfactory proof of at least six (6) hours of attendance at Board approved Continuing Education within nine (9) months prior to renewal of a license, even year. A minimum of one (1) hour s of Continuing Education must be related to the processing of tags and titles. Upon completion of the seminar, the certificate must be issued in the same name as the company employing the instructors.

Rule 681-13-.03 Division Approval of a Continuing Education Program

(1) In the discretion of the Division, the Division may grant prior approval to any of the following types of educational activities to meet Continuing Education requirements:
(a) the Division approved seminar(s);
(b) national or state automobile association sponsored seminars, courses of instruction, or meetings;
(c) courses related to used motor vehicles at any state certified institution of higher learning;
(d) seminars or courses related to used cars sponsored or participated in by any state or federal agency;
(e) any other seminar, course, or meeting which the Division deems to be appropriately related to the used car business.
(2) Requests for approval of any educational activity must be submitted to the Division prior to the date of the educational activity, and shall include a complete and specific description of the educational activity, a description of how it will benefit licensees in conducting their businesses, the number of hours involved, a description of the method which will be used to ensure attendance, and copies of any instructional materials which will be provided to attendees. The proposal shall also include an agreement by the seminar presenter certifying, to the Executive Director of the Division, an accurate electronic attendance report immediately following each offering of the seminar. The Executive Director of the Division shall provide the appropriate format for submission of the electronic attendance report. At the time approval is granted, the Division shall also determine how many hours of continuing education a licensee may receive by attending the program. At any time the Division deems that a previously approved educational activity is not meeting the requirements for Continuing Education, it may revoke the approval of the activity.

Rule 681-13-.04 Sanctions

Any licensee who does not meet the requirements of this Rule shall be subject to having their license put on probation for a six-month period, receiving a private reprimand, and having to pay a $100 penalty fee in order to renew the license. In its discretion, the Division may impose any additional sanctions available to it which it deems appropriate. If the licensee has still not met the Continuing Education requirements at the end of the six-month probation period, the license, at the discretion of the Board, may be subject to a hearing for revocation of license.
