[Comment: Information regarding the availability and effective date of the materials incorporated by reference in this rule can be found in paragraph (G) of rule 4723-1-03 of the Administrative Code.]
(A) The board shall provide access to an on-line "Dialysis Technician Renewal Application," for renewal to every holder of a current, valid dialysis technician certificate, except when the board is aware that the individual may be ineligible for renewal for any reason, including those reasons set forth in section 4723.092 of the Revised Code.
(B) To renew a dialysis technician certificate, a holder of a current, valid certificate shall complete the continuing education requirements set forth in rule 4723-23-06 of the Administrative Code and submit:
(1) A completed "'Dialysis Technician Renewal Application"; and
(2) A renewal fee of thirty-five dollars,
(C) If a completed renewal application is not submitted on-line by March first of odd numbered years, in order to renew the applicant shall pay a late processing fee according to division (A)(13) of section 4723.08 of the Revised Code. The late processing fee is in addition to the renewal fee specified in paragraph (B) of this rule.
(D) A certificate holder with a current, valid certificate who does not intend to practice as a dialysis technician in Ohio may request that the certificate be placed on inactive status at any time by submitting to the board a written statement or electronic request asking that the certificate be placed on inactive status.
(E) A certificate holder who has requested that their dialysis technician certificate be placed on inactive status is not required to pay a renewal fee unless the holder seeks to reactivate the certificate. If the certificate holder placed a certificate on inactive status after March first of the year in which the certificate was to be renewed, and then notifies the board on or before March thirty-first of the same renewal year of the intent to reactivate, the certificate holder must still pay the late processing fee required by paragraph (C) of this rule.
(F) A dialysis technician who does not renew a certificate on or before March thirty-first of odd numbered years, and has not requested inactive status according to paragraph (E) of this rule, shall have a lapsed certificate.
(G) An individual who continues to practice in Ohio as a dialysis technician with an inactive or lapsed certificate shall be subject to disciplinary action under section 4723.28 of the Revised Code.
(H) To reactivate an inactive certificate or reinstate a lapsed certificate, an individual must complete the continuing education requirements set forth in rule 4723-23-06 of the Administrative Code and submit:
(1) A completed "Dialysis Technician Reactivation or Reinstatement Application"; and
(2) A reactivation fee of thirty-five dollars.
(I) A dialysis technician certificate holder who is a service member or veteran, as defined in rule 4723-2-01 of the Administrative Code, or who is the spouse or surviving spouse of a service member or veteran, may be eligible for a waiver of the late application fee and the reinstatement fee according to rule 4723-2-03 of the Administrative Code.
