A person whose certificate has expired may apply to the commissioner of health, for reinstatement of a water operator certificate, or to the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency for reinstatement of a wastewater operator certificate. An applicant's certificate may only be reinstated to the class of the certificate which had expired. Before a certificate will be issued, such person must submit the following: the application for reinstatement; the nonrefundable fee for a reinstatement certificate; and evidence of the fact that the person has complied with the continuing education requirements imposed in part 9400.1200, subpart 1, during the entire time since the expired certificate was last issued or renewed.
A person who is denied reinstatement who wants to be recertified must follow the procedures for a new applicant specified in parts 9400.0900 and 9400.1000. The nonrefundable reinstatement fee shall be considered the fee for application of examination.
A person may apply for reinstatement up to one year after expiration of the previous certificate. If more than one year has elapsed from the expiration of the certificate, a person must apply for the certificate as specified in parts 9400.0900 and 9400.1000.
The commissioner of health or the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency respectively will reinstate a suspended certificate if the individual whose certificate has been suspended fulfills the terms of the suspension order and meets all applicable requirements of the rules for obtaining a certificate.
