    Sec. 11. Expiration and renewal; restoration; military service.
    (a) The expiration date and renewal period for each certificate issued under this Act shall be set by rule.
    (b) Any occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant who has permitted his or her license to expire or who has had his or her license on inactive status may have his or her license restored by making application to the Department, by filing proof acceptable to the Department of his fitness to have his license restored, by paying the required fee, and by showing proof of compliance with any continuing education requirements. Proof of fitness may include sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction.
    If the occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Department shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, his fitness to resume active status and shall establish procedures and requirements for restoration.
    (c) However, any occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant whose license expired while he was (1) in Federal Service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States, or the State Militia called into service or training, or (2) in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service, may have his or her license renewed or restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees if within 2 years after honorable termination of such service, training or education except under conditions other than honorable, he or she furnishes the Department with satisfactory evidence to the effect that he or she has been so engaged and that his or her service, training, or education has been so terminated.
