(2) In this section, "extreme hardship" means an inability to fulfill the continuing education requirements during the applicable renewal period because of one of the following:
(a) Full-time service in the uniformed services of the United States for a period of at least one year during the biennium.
(b) An incapacitating illness documented by a statement from a licensed physician.
(c) A physical inability to travel to the sites of approved programs documented by a licensed physician.

(3) A renewal applicant may not receive a waiver under sub. (2) (b) or (c) for 2 consecutive biennia.
(6) A renewal applicant, who prior to the expiration date of the license submits a request for a waiver, pays the renewal fee and provides a statement setting forth the facts concerning noncompliance and the basis of the request, shall be deemed to be in good standing until the final decision on the application is issued by the professional engineer section. If a finding of extreme hardship is not determined, an applicant may not engage in the practice of professional engineering until the registration is renewed based upon compliance with the continuing education requirements under this chapter.
