§ 38.2-1870. Waiver of continuing education requirements
The requirements of this article pertaining to the number of course credits required may be waived, in whole or in part, by the Board for good cause shown. As used herein, "good cause" includes long-term illness or incapacity and such other emergency situations as may be determined by the Board as preventing the agent from satisfying the continuing education credit hours required by this article. Requests for waivers of continuing education requirements shall be made in a form and manner prescribed by the Board. Requests for waiver of all course credit requirements shall be submitted to the Board or its administrator no later than ninety calendar days prior to the end of the biennium for which such waiver is requested. In the event that the long-term illness, incapacity, or such other emergency situation referenced above manifests itself within 120 calendar days prior to the end of the biennium, requests for waivers of some but not all of the course credit requirements shall be submitted to the Board or its administrator no later than the applicable submission deadline set forth in § 38.2-1868.1. The Board shall approve or disapprove the waiver request within thirty calendar days of receipt thereof, and shall provide written notice of its decision to the applicant for waiver within five calendar days of rendering its decision. Any waiver granted pursuant to this section shall be valid only for the biennium for which waiver application was made.
