  2.  If any pharmacist fails, after the expiration of the pharmacist's license, to make application to the board for its renewal, the pharmacist's name shall be removed from the register of licensed pharmacists, and such person, in order to again become registered as a licensed pharmacist, shall be required to pay all delinquent fees.  Any pharmacist who fails to renew the pharmacist's license within two years of its expiration and then desires to be preregistered shall be treated in the same manner as a person who has never been licensed.  Any registered pharmacist whose certificate of registration has expired while the pharmacist has been engaged in active duty with the United States Army, United States Navy, United States Air Force, the Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or any other branch of the armed services or the state militia called into the service or training of the United States of America, or in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military services may have the pharmacist's certificate of registration renewed without paying any lapse, renewal or registration fee or without passing any examination, if within one year after the termination of such service, training or education, other than by dishonorable discharge, the pharmacist furnishes the board with an affidavit to the effect that the pharmacist has been so engaged and that the pharmacist's service, training or education has terminated.

  3.  Except as provided in subsection 5 of this section, when applying for a renewal of the license as required by the provisions of this section, each licensed pharmacist shall submit proof of the completion of at least fifteen hours of board-approved continuing education courses during each twelve-month period immediately preceding the date of the application for renewal of the license.  The board shall prescribe the form to be completed.  No license shall be renewed unless the holder thereof has complied with the provisions of this subsection.

  4.  The proof of completion of such continuing education shall be in such form as the board may require.  The approved courses shall include those offered by correspondence, but the board shall approve all courses of instruction which may be used to satisfy the education requirements of subsection 3 of this section.

  5.  Each licensed pharmacist may, instead of submitting proof of the completion of the required continuing education courses, apply for an inactive license at the time the pharmacist makes application for the renewal of the pharmacist's license and pay the required renewal fee.  An inactive license shall then be issued, and may be renewed biennially.  While the inactive license is in effect the pharmacist shall not practice pharmacy.  The inactive license may be changed to a regular license without other examination whenever the pharmacist submits proof of the completion of continuing education courses for the total amount of such courses not completed since the pharmacist was last licensed on an active basis.
