(4) Applications for renewals of permits must be accompanied by evidence satisfactory to the board that the applicant has complied with continuing education requirements under ORS 673.165 (Continuing education) unless those requirements have been waived by the board.

(5)(a) A permit that is not renewed by the close of the permit period may be restored upon payment of a delinquent renewal fee in an amount determined by the board by rule.
