triennial registration period during which they are  first  licensed  by

ments to the mandatory continuing education requirement may  be  granted

  § 2. This act shall take effect January 1, 2020. Effective  immediate-
ly,  the  addition and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for
the implementation of this act on its effective date are authorized  and
directed to be made on or before such effective date.
