(g) A certified navigator or registered application organization's failure to receive a business electronic mail notification of renewal due to failure to submit to the department a valid business electronic mail address, or for any other reason, shall not:
(1) constitute an error on the part of the department; or
(2) exonerate or otherwise excuse the navigator or application organization from completing the annual certification or registration renewal requirements under this rule.
(h) An application organization that allows its registration to lapse may, not more than thirty (30) days after the expiration date, reinstate the same registration by submitting the renewal application and nonrefundable renewal fee to the department. A penalty in the amount of three (3) times the renewal fee shall be required in addition to the renewal application and fee received past the expiration date of the registration.
(i) A navigator who has:
(1) allowed certification to lapse; and

A penalty in the amount of three (3) times the renewal fee shall be required in addition to the renewal application and fee received past the expiration date of the certification. A certified navigator who allows certification to lapse and does not submit the renewal application, pay the renewal fee and penalty fee within the thirty (30) day late period, and does not complete all continuing education before the certification expiration date, must reapply for new navigator certification under this rule.
(j) A navigator shall complete at least two (2) hours of navigator continuing education, approved by the commissioner in accordance with 760 IAC 4-9, as part of the annual navigator certification renewal.
(k) A certified navigator who is unable to comply with the certification renewal requirements under this rule due to military service or another extenuating circumstance, as determined by the commissioner, may request a temporary waiver from the renewal requirements by submitting a waiver request to the department by no later than the certification expiration date. The waiver request shall be submitted to the department in a manner specified by the commissioner. The department shall notify the navigator in writing following receipt of the waiver request whether such request is granted or denied.
