If that state has no CPE requirements, the non-resident licensees must meet the Board's CPE requirements. The state of residence must have CPE standards that are considered substantially equivalent to those of West Virginia.

A CPE waiver or partial waiver due to extenuating circumstances may be filed with the Board office no later than the January 31 filing deadline.

Waiver requests due to business circumstances will probably not be approved.
