The changes to §535.218(f) serve to extend the amount of time an instructor of a ride-along inspection course can provide a certificate of course completion to receive continuing education credit. Now, such instructors can provide documentation within the instructor’s current license period for a course taught within that same term. The changes to 22 TAC §535.218 are being made to reflect the fact that in 2021, a new eight-hour non-elective course—the Inspector Legal and Ethics and Standards of Practice Review—replaced the two four-hour courses in 2021. The repeal of subsection (c) in 22 TAC §535.218 is the result of duplicative language. Subsection (d)(1) is is removed to account for the scenario whereby an inspector renews the inspector’s license after the license’s expiration date.
