Okla. Admin. Code § 490:1-9-5 - Auditing of continuing education hours

Current through Register Vol. 39, No. 2, October 1, 2021

(a) The Board may request continuing education information from sponsors for audit purposes only.
(b) The Board does not retain any record of continuing education hours completed by individual administrators except as it may otherwise obtain in its performance of the annual CE compliance audit.
(c) An annual audit of at least 5% of the total number of each type of administrator will be made to verify compliance with the annual CE requirement. This percentage may be increased at the Board's discretion. If a license is not renewed by the last day of the current licensing year, an audit to verify compliance with the annual CE requirement shall be conducted prior to reinstatement of the license.
(d) Failure of a licensee to provide verification of continuing education hours completed, if requested by the Board, shall result in disciplinary action against the licensee. The minimum penalty for a first time offense is $50.00 per clock hour not completed and completion of twice the number of clock hours not completed, due within 120 days. These clock hours cannot be applied to the current year's requirements. This is also a NPDB (National Practitioners Data Bank) reportable offense. For a second offense, the penalty will double. Any subsequent offenses shall be referred to the Board for determination of an appropriate penalty which may include suspension or revocation. The Administrator shall be informed in writing prior to the drafting of an order that they may request a formal hearing before the Board in lieu of the " standard" penalty for either the first or second time offense, in which case a formal complaint shall be drafted and the Board shall have a full range of penalty options available to them, to include suspension and revocation. These automatic penalties for the first and second offense do not require Board approval; however, any variation from this "standard" will require Board approval. A formal complaint and appropriate order will still be drafted by the Board's attorney and the action taken shall be reported to the Board.
