fee and payment of each year's renewal fee, at the current rate; and

date shall have the license canceled and shall be required to submit an application,
pay the license fee, meet current licensing requirements, and pass any applicable

before the license may be reinstated.

of a renewal fee, without penalty, for a two-year license commencing on the date the

that the board finds that a health or other requirement applicable to the license
has changed, evidence showing that the holder of the license has successfully completed,
from a school licensed under RCW 18.16.140, at least the number of curriculum clock hours of instruction that the board deems
necessary for a licensee to be brought current with respect to such changes, but in
