(a) General rule.--To be eligible to apply for licensure, an applicant must fulfill the following requirements:
(1) Be of good moral character.
(2) Be 18 years of age or older.
(3) Hold current certification.
(4) Pay the fee set by the board.
(b) Renewal of license.--In the case of a licensee applying for renewal of license where certification will expire before the biennial renewal cycle will expire, the licensee shall submit evidence satisfactory to the board that the licensee has renewed certification. Failure to maintain certification or to submit evidence of renewal of certification shall subject the licensee to disciplinary action. The board shall promulgate regulations setting forth the evidence necessary to demonstrate renewal of certification as provided in this subsection.
(c) Convictions prohibited.--
(1) The board shall not issue a license to an individual who has been convicted of a felony under the act of April 14, 1972 (P.L. 233, No. 64), 1 known as The Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act, or an offense under the laws of another jurisdiction which, if committed in this Commonwealth, would be a felony under The Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act unless:
(i) at least ten years have elapsed from the date of conviction;
(ii) the individual satisfactorily demonstrates to the board that the individual has made significant progress in personal rehabilitation since the conviction such that licensure of the individual should not be expected to create a substantial risk of harm to the health and safety of crane operators, trainees or the public or a substantial risk of further criminal violations; and
(iii) the individual otherwise satisfies the qualifications provided in this act.
(2) An individual's statement on the application declaring the absence of a conviction shall be deemed satisfactory evidence of the absence of a conviction, unless the board has some evidence to the contrary.
