 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   Section 1. Paragraph (b) of subdivision  1  of  section  7308  of  the

 to read as follows:
   (b) [Architects shall be exempt from the mandatory  continuing  educa-
 tion requirement for the triennial registration period during which they
 are  first  licensed.]  In  accord  with  the intent of this section, AN
 adjustment  AND/OR  EXEMPTION  to  the  mandatory  continuing  education
 requirement  may  be  granted  by  the  department for reasons of health
 certified by an  appropriate  health  care  professional,  for  extended
 active  duty  with  the  armed forces of the United States, or for other
 good cause acceptable to the department which may prevent compliance.
   § 2. Subdivision 2 of section 7308 of the education law, as amended by
 chapter 683 of the laws of 2005, is amended to read as follows:
   2. During each triennial registration period an applicant  for  regis-
 tration  shall  complete  a  minimum  of  thirty-six hours of acceptable
 continuing education, as specified in subdivision four of this  section,
 provided  that  a minimum of twenty-four hours of such continuing educa-
 tion shall be in the areas of health, safety and welfare.  [Up  to  one-
 half  of  the  total  hours  of continuing education may consist of non-
 course  activities.]  Any  architect  whose  first   registration   date
 following  the  effective  date  of  this section occurs less than three
 years from such effective date, but on or after January first, two thou-
 sand one, shall complete continuing education hours on a prorated  basis
 at  the  rate  of  one  hour  per month for the period beginning January
 first, two thousand up to the  first  registration  date  thereafter.  A
