A minimum of fifteen clock hours must be completed within twenty-four months of the licensee's current renewal date, and a portion of that fifteen must include three hours of the prescribed core curriculum defined in WAC 308-124A-800. Up to fifteen clock hours of instruction beyond the thirty clock hours submitted for a previous renewal date may be carried forward to the following renewal date.
