CEU waiver for licensed Administrators expires on March 20, 2021!

On February 3, 2021, Governor Mills signed Executive Order 29 to reinstate certain licensing requirements (which were waived during the State of Emergency). What that means is, if you hold an active license issued by the NHA Licensing Board, you will have to show proof of continuing education when you renew your license. This raised a number of questions so we reached out to the Board Administrator, Kristina Halverson, for clarification.  Here's what she provided for guidance:
 
Executive Order 29 repealed a part of Executive Order 35 which allowed a waiver of continuing education for licenses that expire before March 20, 2021. The licensees that did not renew in 2020 due to the extensions allowed in that executive order will have to show proof of continuing education if they renew after March 20, 2021.  Licenses that expire after March 20, 2021 will not be able to renew until 60 days before the expiration date. Licenses that expire after March 20, 2021 will no longer have a waiver of continuing education as that expires on March 20, 2021 pursuant to Governor Mills' Executive Order 35.
 
If a licensee has not completed continuing education when they renew, they will be able to answer the continuing education question "NO" and there will be a section where they can explain why they did not.  If it was due to COVID-19, they should say that and request a hardship waiver/deferment.  The renewal will be sent to me for review and processing.
 
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Kristina directly. She can be reached at 207.624.8420 or Kristina.M.Halvorsen@maine.gov
