  • § 4187. Renewals

    (a)(1) Biennially, the Director shall forward a renewal form to each licensed midwife. The completed form shall include verification that during the preceding two years, the licensed midwife has:

    (A) completed 20 hours of continuing education approved by the Director by rule;

    (B) participated in at least four peer reviews;

    (C) submitted individual practice data;

    (D) maintained current cardiopulmonary resuscitation certification; and

    (E) filed a timely certificate of birth for each birth at which he or she was the attending midwife, as required by law.

    (2) Upon receipt of the completed form and of the renewal fee, the Director shall issue a renewal license to applicants who qualify under this section.

    (b) The Director shall renew a license that has lapsed for a period of three years or less upon receipt of the renewal fee and late renewal penalty, the reinstatement fee, and an application for renewal that shows that the person still meets the eligibility requirements of this chapter and that all the requirements for renewal, including continuing education, have been satisfied. A person shall not be required to pay renewal fees for lapsed years.

    (c) The Director may adopt rules to assure that an applicant whose license has lapsed for a period greater than three years may be eligible for licensing, but such rules shall not establish requirements greater than the eligibility requirements of this chapter.
