Courses Submitted to Ohio EPA for Approval
If Form A's are not submitted to OWEA Contact Hour Chair, Marc Morgan, by the end of the 25th the month prior to an event, the Form A's must be submitted directly to Ohio EPA.  The Ohio EPA Operator Certification Unit is currently very busy with certification renewals, recent exams, and Form A's. Form A's are being approved as soon as possible.

If you are waiting for Contact Hour Approval Numbers, Ohio EPA suggests you wait to submit your sheets until you have the issued numbers, since shorted renewals require more paperwork, slowing the system down even more. With the "grace period", no one should be in danger of losing their licence (unless they are already at the end of their grace period).
