(B) limit practice to those areas prescribed;

(C) continue professional education until a satisfactory degree of skill has been attained in those areas determined by the department to need improvement;

(6) impose limitations or conditions on the practice of a licensee.

(b) The department may withdraw a limitation, condition, or probationary status if it finds that the deficiency that required the sanction has been remedied.
