(a)  A currently valid certification as an animal waste management system operator shall be maintained by:

(1)           the payment of the annual renewal fee of ten dollars ($10.00) set forth in G.S. 90A-47.4(b), prior to December 31 of the year of renewal;

(2)           completion of six hours of additional training approved by the Commission during each three-year period following initial certification.

(b)  A certified animal waste management system operator that fails to pay the annual renewal fee within 30 days of the due date, or fails to complete the approved training within 30 days of the end of the three-year period, shall take and pass an examination approved by the Commission to renew the certificate.

(c)  60 days prior to the renewal due date, the Commission shall mail renewal notices to each certified operator at the last address on file with the Commission. Failure to receive a renewal notice does not relieve a certified operator of the responsibility to renew the certificate by the renewal due date.
