§ 1399.152.3. Examination Requirement.
(a) Applicants shall be deemed to have satisfied the examination requirements of section 2532.2(e) of the Code if they have taken the National Examination in Speech-Language Pathology or the National Examination in Audiology administered by the Educational Testing Service of Princeton, New Jersey, within five years preceding the date on which their application is filed with the Board and have achieved a score on such examination which is acceptable to the Board.
(b)(1) Applicants who have taken and passed the National Examination; and
(2)(A) who are licensed in another state, or
(B) who hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence issued by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association in the field for which licensure is sought, or
(C) who were previously licensed in this state, whose license has lapsed under section 2535.4 of the Code; and
(3) who provide proof of continuous employment, except for usual and customary absences for illness and vacation, in the field for which licensure is sought, for three years immediately prior to the date on which their application was filed with this Board, may be deemed to have satisfied the examination requirement referred to in subsection (a) even though the National Examination may have been taken more than five (5) years from the date on which their application was filed with the Board. Continuous employment in the field for which licensure is sought is defined as documented employment of not less than (15) hours per week during the (3) years specified above while maintaining a license in the state where the applicant was employed. The applicant may request to appear before the Board if his or her waiver application has been denied.
If an applicant has less employment experience than that required for a waiver of the examination, then the Board may also consider, on a case-by-case basis, any continuing education in the field the applicant may have obtained during the above-mentioned three-year period.
