§ 1399.153.10. Reissuance of RPE Temporary License.
(a) Upon written request by the RPE temporary license holder and prior to the expiration of the temporary license, the Board in its discretion may reissue the license by extending its expiration date for a period to be determined by the Board but may not exceed one year. Under no circumstances will the Board reissue or extend a temporary license because of failure by the requestor, within the initial RPE temporary license period, to submit the required licensing documentation or because of a failure by the requestor to take and pass the licensing examination as specified in Section 1399.152.3.
(b) The request for re-issuance of the RPE temporary license must submitted 60 days prior to the expiration of the original temporary license and must be accompanied by a completed Required Professional Experience Verification form number 77V-21 (Rev. 3-02). The Board will notify the RPE temporary license holder, within (30) working days after receipt of the request, whether a temporary license will be reissued to the RPE temporary license holder. If the request is denied, the RPE temporary license holder shall terminate practice upon expiration of the original temporary license. Failure to cease practice may result in disciplinary action taken by the Board against the RPE temporary license holder and/or the designated RPE supervisor.
(c) If the request for the re-issuance of the RPE temporary license is a result of;
(1) the RPE temporary license holder or an immediate family member, where the RPE temporary license holder has primary responsibility for the care of that family member, was suffering from or suffered a disability (a disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of an individual) then the disability shall be verified by a licensed physician or psychologist with expertise in the area of the disability. Verification of the disability shall include;
A. the nature and extent of the disability;
B. an explanation of how the disability hinders the RPE temporary license holder from completing the experience; and
C. the name, address, telephone number, professional license or certification number, and original signature of the licensed physician or psychologist verifying the disability; or
(2) the RPE temporary license holder's designated supervisor has determined that the RPE temporary license holder requires additional experience in one or more practice area(s) to gain entry level competency for independent practice then the designated supervisor shall submit a written request to the Board justifying the need for additional experience including the following information;
A. the amount of time requested;
B. the areas of deficient professional skills, services or knowledge;
C. a remediation plan to address the deficiency;
D. a method to determine that the deficiencies have been addressed by the end of the extension; and
E. signatures of the requesting supervisor and the RPE temporary license holder indicating agreement with the justification.
(3) the RPE temporary license holder not receiving adequate supervision and training and has determined that he or she is not proficient in one or more practice area(s) then the RPE temporary license holder, with the assistance of a designated supervisor, shall submit a written request to the Board including the information specified in subsection (2).
(d) The fee for reissuing a temporary license to extend the required professional experience term shall be the same fee as that charged for the original RPE temporary license application as provided in Section 1399.153.2.
