Ala. Admin. Code r. 750-X-4-.01 - License Renewal

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 6, March 31, 2022

(a) Licensees are required to submit an annual renewal fee to the Board after the initial year of licensure. License renewal consists of payment of the annual renewal fee, payment of the annual continuing education fee and demonstration of fulfillment of the annual continuing education requirement. As a courtesy, a renewal notice will be mailed to the licensee's address of record on August15 of each year with payment due by October 15. Failure to receive a renewal notice from the Board will not relieve the licensee from the renewal requirement. Renewal fees will not be accepted prior to the mailing of the renewal notifications. October 15 is the official renewal date. Checks drawn on insufficient funds or otherwise invalid must be replaced by a cashier's check or money order.
(b) Failure to comply with all requirements for renewal by October 15 shall result in a lapsed license. Failure to renew a license prior to October 15 will not deprive the licensee of the right to renew, but prohibits that individual from continuing to practice unless working in an exempt setting. A licensee may have his or her lapsed license reinstated upon satisfaction of the following:
(1) Payment of annual fees in arrears. (See Appendix I, Fee Schedule)
(2) Payment of late penalty/penalties. Any renewal fee paid after October 15 will be increased by $20.00 for each month or fraction thereof that the payment is late.
(3) Submission of proof of compliance with continuing education requirements.
(4) If a psychologist or psychological technician is alleged to have violated any prohibition on professional conduct as referenced in the law, the Board, upon a hearing and proof of the violation, may deny reinstatement of the license or prohibit the psychologist or psychological technician from applying for reinstatement of licensure.
(5) A person who fails to renew a lapsed license within a period of two years after the date of its expiration is not eligible for reinstatement. The license may not be restored or reissued. The individual will be required to submit a new application for licensure and meet the statutory requirements in existence at time of re-application.
