(A) This instruction may be taken as a single eight (8)-hour class or in smaller increments that total at least eight (8) hours within each two (2)-year renewal period.
(2) At least four (4) hours of instruction in laws, regulations, policies, and procedural standards that impact the operation of residential care facilities for the elderly, including but not limited to the regulations contained in this Chapter.

(1) The Department will not count toward the continuing education requirements more than ten (10) hours of instruction, in-class and/or online, completed in a single day.
(2) Home study or correspondence-type courses will not be counted toward completion of continuing education requirements as they are not interactive by design.
(3) Completion of an Initial Certification Training Program or component(s) thereof will not be counted toward completion of continuing education requirements as the Program is intended for new administrators.
(4) Any specific continuing education course may only be accepted once per renewal period toward completion of the continuing education requirements.
(d) To apply for recertification prior to the expiration date of the certificate, the certificate holder shall submit to the Department's Administrator Certification Section, post-marked on, or up to ninety (90) days before, the certificate expiration date:

(2) Evidence of completion of the required continuing education hours as specified in Section 87407(a), or 87407(g), if applicable.

(3) Payment of a non-refundable delinquency fee equal to three times the one hundred dollar ($100) renewal fee, or three hundred dollars ($300).
(4) A copy of the front and back of his/her current nursing home wallet license, or equivalent, if the applicant is a current Nursing Home Administrator.
