Section 34-25-29

Termination and renewal of examiner's license.

(a)(1) Each polygraph examiner's license shall be issued for the term of one year and shall, unless suspended or revoked, be renewed annually as prescribed by the board. A polygraph examiner whose license has expired may at any time within two months after the expiration obtain a renewal license, without examination or late penalty fee, by submitting a renewal application to the board and satisfying subdivisions (2), (3), and (4) of subsection (a) of Section 34-25-21. A polygraph examiner whose license has expired, and who does not apply for renewal within two months following expiration, may at any time within three to six months after the expiration obtain a renewal license, without examination, by paying a late penalty fee as prescribed by the board, submitting a renewal application to the board, and satisfying subdivisions (2), (3), and (4) of subsection (a) of Section 34-25-21.

(2) However, any polygraph examiner whose license expired while he or she was in the federal service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States, or the National Guard called into service or training, or in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service, may have his or her license renewed, without examination or late penalty fee, if within six months after termination of such service, training, or education, except under conditions other than honorable, he or she furnishes the board with an affidavit to the effect that he or she has been so engaged and that his or her service, training, or other education has been terminated. Subdivisions (2), (3), and (4) of subsection (a) of Section 34-25-21 shall also be satisfied.

(b) The board shall adopt a program of continuing education for its licensees not later than October 1, 1993, and after that date no licensee shall have his or her active license renewed unless, in addition to any other requirements of this chapter, the minimum continuing annual education requirements are met. It is further provided that this continuing education program may not include testing or examination of the licensees in any manner.
