Ala. Admin. Code r. 740-X-4-.01 - Internship License Program

Section 34-25-25 of the act provides for an internship license program. The details and procedures of that program will be as follows:

(a) The internship license program will be opened to those applicants for a polygraph examiner's license who have not served a six (6) month internship. During the internship period the applicant will receive an additional training in polygraphy before they will be able to demonstrate sufficient competency to be issued a regular polygraph examiner's license;
(b) An application for an internship license shall be completed with necessary supporting documents by the applicant, in writing under oath, on forms prescribed and supplied by the Board. If an application is not completed within the six months following the Board's notice to the applicant, the application will be void.
(c) No applicant will be issued an internship license until that applicant has completed the residence phase of a polygraph school approved by the Board.
(d) At the time the Board issues an internship license, the Board will appoint for each intern a sponsor who holds a regular Alabama Polygraph Examiner's License, or is otherwise determined to be qualified by the Board. In no event will a member of the Board serve as a sponsor for an intern.
(e) It is the responsibility of each intern to contact his sponsor and to establish a schedule of meetings with his sponsor. An intern must meet with his sponsor no fewer than five times in each sixty day reporting period.
(f) It is the responsibility and duty of each sponsor of an intern to monitor the performance of the intern whom the sponsor supervises, to evaluate and critique the performance of that intern, and to supply any advice and assistance necessary to aid the intern in satisfying the purpose and goal of the internship program.
(g) It is the responsibility and duty of each sponsor of an intern to submit to the Board at least every sixty days a report outlining the progress of the intern under supervision during that period, on a form to be prescribed by the Board.
(h) During the internship period, the intern must complete such additional courses or programs as required by the intern's polygraph school and as the Board may require.
(i) During the internship period, the intern must complete all other qualification requirements prescribed by the Polygraph Examiners Act or by the Board.
(j) Pursuant to Code of Ala. 1975, § 34-25-25(b), for good cause shown, the Board may renew or extend an internship license for a period not to exceed six months.
(k) At or near the completion of the internship period, the intern will be required to comply with the requirements of Rule 740-X-3-.05.
