Review of Licensing and Certification Applications and Renewals

Each application for licensure or certification is reviewed by Board staff for compliance with the minimum license or certification requirements. The review includes both professional qualifications and moral fitness of the applicants. In the case of certification for a euthanasia agency, a member of the Certified Euthanasia Task Force conducts an inspection of the facility, and approves or disapproves the facility based upon the minimum requirements for a euthanasia agency, prior to the certification application being processed at the Board office. Upon successful application and examination, licenses or certifications are issued. The Board may deny licensure or certification for any applicant that fails to meet the application and examination criteria. All licenses and certificates are renewed annually, and must be renewed before July 1 to avoid a penalty for late filing and possible discipline for practicing without a valid license.
