    Sec. 80. Sanctions.
    (a) The Board shall impose any of the following sanctions, singularly or in combination when it finds that a licensee is guilty of any offense described in this Act:
        (1) revocation;
        (2) suspension for any period of time;
        (3) reprimand or censure;
        (4) place on probationary status and require the
submission of any of the following:
            (i) report regularly to the Board or State Fire
Marshal upon matters which are the basis of the probation;
            (ii) continue or renew professional education
until a satisfactory degree of skill has been attained in those areas which are the basis of the probation; or
            (iii) such other reasonable requirements or
restrictions as are proper.
        (5) refuse to issue, renew, or restore; or
        (6) revoke probation which has been granted and
impose any other discipline in this subsection (a) when the requirements of probation have not been fulfilled or have been violated.
    (b) The State Fire Marshal may summarily suspend a license under this Act, without a hearing, simultaneously with the filing of a formal complaint and notice for a hearing provided under this Section if the State Fire Marshal finds that the continued operations of the individual would constitute an immediate danger to the public. In the event the State Fire Marshal suspends a license under this subsection, a hearing by the hearing officer designated by the State Fire Marshal shall begin within 20 days after the suspension begins, unless continued at the request of the licensee.
    (c) Disposition may be made of any formal complaint by consent order between the State Fire Marshal and the licensee, but the Board must be apprised of the full consent order in a timely way.
    (d) The Board shall reinstate any license to good standing under this Act, upon recommendation to the Board, after a hearing before the hearing officer authorized by the Board. The Board shall be satisfied that the applicant's renewed practice is not contrary to the public interest.
    (e) The Board may conduct hearings and issue cease and desist orders to persons who engage in activities prohibited by this Act without having a valid license, certificate, or registration. Any person in violation of a cease and desist order entered by the Board shall be subject to all of the remedies provided by law, and in addition, shall be subject to a civil penalty payable to the party injured by the violation.
    (f) The Board shall seek to achieve consistency in the application of the foregoing sanctions and consent orders and significant departure from prior decisions involving similar conduct shall be explained in the Board's orders.
