(1) No more than (2) hours of self-study activities,
(2) No more than (2) hours from courses related to the discipline of speech-language pathology or audiology as defined in Section 1399.160.4(c)(4), or in indirect client care courses as defined in Section 1399.160.4(c)(3).
(b) A licensee is exempt from the continuing professional development requirement if his or her license is inactive pursuant to Sections 703 and 704 of the Code.
(c) A licensee may submit a written request for exemption from the continuing professional development requirement for any of the reasons listed below. The Board will notify the licensee, within thirty (30) working days after receipt of the request for exemption, whether the exemption was granted. If the request for exemption is denied, the licensee is responsible for completing the full amount of continuing professional development required for license renewal. The Board shall grant the exemption if the licensee can provide evidence, satisfactory to the Board, that:
(1) For at least one year during the licensee's previous license renewal period the licensee was absent from California due to military service;
(2) For at least one year during the licensee's previous license renewal period the licensee resided in another country; or
(3) During the licensee's previous renewal period, the licensee or an immediate family member, where the licensee has primary responsibility for the care of that family member, was suffering from or suffered a disability. A disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of an individual. The disability shall be verified by a licensed physician or psychologist with special expertise in the area of disability. Verification of the disability shall include:
(A) the nature and extent of the disability;
(B) an explanation of how the disability hinders the licensee from completing the continuing professional development requirement; and
(C) the name, title, address, telephone number, professional license or certification number, and original signature of the licensed physician or psychologist verifying the disability.
