(b) The licensee shall not engage in any activity for which a license is required.
(c) An inactive license shall be renewed during the same time period in which an active license or certificate is renewed. Any continuing education requirements for renewing a license are waived.

(e) To restore an inactive license to an active status, the holder shall do both of the following:
1) Pay the renewal and any continuing competency fees.
2) Complete continuing education equivalent to that required for a single renewal period of an active license within the last two years prior to applying to restore the license to active status.
(f) The inactive status of any licensee does not deprive the board of its authority to institute or continue any disciplinary or enforcement action against the licensee.
