[EXTERNAL]: Notice of Rule Waiver/Modification/Suspension - relaxation of certain provisions regarding continuing education requirements for LSRP license renewal

On June 18, 2020, the New Jersey Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board (Board) issued a Notice of Rule Waiver/Modification/Suspension pursuant to Executive Order No. 103, regarding the relaxation of certain provisions of the Regulations of the New Jersey Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board (Board Rules), N.J.A.C. 7:26I, pertaining to continuing education requirements for license renewal.

In order to be eligible to renew their license, an LSRP must fulfill the continuing education requirements, specifically those set forth at N.J.A.C. 7:26I-4.3(d) which states that of the 36 credits required for license renewal, no more than 18 credits may be earned in an alternative verifiable learning format (AVLF) such as online courses. Social distancing practices described in Executive Order No. 107 have resulted in the cancellation of in-person courses for the foreseeable future, and course providers are instead conducting courses in an AVLF. It is uncertain when in-person courses will begin again, and when they do, if there will be a sufficient number of courses and seats to accommodate anticipated participants.

The Board has determined that it is necessary and appropriate to suspend the 18 credit limit on AVLF courses so that LSRPs will not be denied renewal and can continue performing remediation activities. Therefore, the requirements of N.J.A.C. 7:26I-4.3 are modified to allow an LSRP whose license renewal is due on or before December 31, 2021 to fulfill all necessary credit hours through approved courses offered in an AVLF. These LSRPs will qualify for license renewal provided that all the other requirements in N.J.A.C. 7:26I-2.11 have been met.
