All certified training organizations shall record the name and certificate number of all certificates issued to applicants successfully completing the educational training. A municipal licensing authority shall not issue or renew a class 2 license unless a class 2 education certificate is presented to the licensing authority. All class 2 licensees who have successfully obtained a class 2 education certificate shall thereafter annually attend 4 hours of continuing educational training.  Class 2 licensees shall be issued a continuing education certificate which shall also be a condition precedent to obtaining a class 2 license.
