In 2013, the Elevator Safety Review Board had been given the authority to adopt regulations to require a demonstration of continuing professional
competency (CPC) as a condition of renewal of a license.
Effective April 28, 2014, CPC requirements will be required of all licensees. The following phase-in provisions
apply to the respective licensee renewal dates:
- If a license expires before July 1, 2014, a licensee is not required to fulfill CPC requirements.
- If a license expires on or after July 1, 2014, a licensee is required to fulfill CPC requirements.
- The Board may consider, for the purposes of compliance with the CPC requirements, only CPC units earned on or after January 1, 2014.
A licensee will be required to complete a minimum of 8 CPC units during each licensing renewal period. To satisfy this requirement the licensee
must provide documentation offered by the following authorized providers:
- National Association of Elevator Contractors;
- American Society of Mechanical Engineers;
- National Elevator Industry Educational Program; and
- Elevator Industry Work Preservation Fund
Any other provider not on this list must be approved by the Board. The CPC Standards Committee may recommend to the Board approval of other providers or
program, if the provider meets the criteria and submits general information that will enable the Board to evaluate the provider's qualification, including, at
a minimum, the following information with each application for approval: types and descriptions of proposed or existing courses intended to offer; number of CPC
units awarded for each course; the identity and qualifications of the course instructors; and proposed course outlines detailing the contact of instruction to be offered.
Reinstatement of an Expired License
In accordance to §12-833.1, a person, for any reason, has failed to renew their license if the person, applies to the Board for reinstatement
within two years after the license expires; meets the renewal requirements of §12-833 and pays a reinstatement fee of $25.00 in addition to the renewal fee.
If a person has failed to renew a license under §12-833 for any reason and then applies to the Board for reinstatement more than two years after the
license has expired, the Board may require the person to reapply for a license in the same manner as an applicant applies for an original license. Prior to reinstatement
of a license, it is the responsibility of the licensee to complete all CPC requirements that would have been required if the credential holder was in an active status.
A licensee who wishes to reinstate a licenses after failing to complete CPC requirements shall fulfill past due CPC requirements for the previous CPC reporting
periods up to 16 CPC units (8 CPC units for up to two licensing periods) and pay all past due fees, unless the Board finds extenuating circumstances that establish
good cause for a temporary waiver of the licensee's failure to complete the CPC requirements.
