Failure to complete the educational component prior to the applicable deadline will result in the WITHDRAWL of the Participant Approval number; requiring the applicant to re-apply (with additional fees) in order to be reinstated.
Provision of false and/or misleading information on the acknowledgement page will result in the WITHDRAWL of the Participant approval number and render the individual unable to obtain a Participant Approval for a period of Five Years.
