If the board develops such a procedure, an individual seeking to have the individual's license classified inactive shall apply to the board on a form provided by the board and pay the fee established by rules adopted under section 4713.08 of the Revised Code.
(B) The board shall not restore an inactive license until the later of the following:
(1) The date that the individual holding the license submits proof satisfactory to the board that the individual has completed the continuing education that a rule adopted under section 4713.08 of the Revised Code requires;
(2) The last day of January of the next odd-numbered year following the year the license is classified inactive.
(C) An individual who holds an inactive license may engage in the practice of a branch of cosmetology if the individual holds a temporary work permit as specified in rules adopted by the board under section 4713.08 of the Revised Code.
