RENEWAL AUDIT PROCESS
The Board randomly audits ten percent of all renewal applications received. Audit notices are typically sent three months following a renewal period. Individuals selected as part of this random audit process are required to compile and submit verification of the educational hours used for their renewal. Verification may include copies of certificates of attendance, transcripts and/or letters of completion. Once this material is reviewed and approved by the Board, individuals will be issued a correspondence indicating that the audit was successfully completed. Since the audit process is random, individuals may be selected for audit multiple times.
