Rule Rule 877-020-0036
Reapplication for Certificate or License


(1)

Following the voluntary surrender of a certificate or license under OAR 877-020-0031 (Surrender of License or Certificate)(2), the board may issue a new certificate or license if:

(a)

The applicant submits a letter to the board explaining the reasons for returning to practice;

(b)

The board approves the applicant’s proposal to demonstrate competence to hold the certificate or license. The plan may involve participation in continuing education programs or clinical supervision; and

(c)

The applicant takes and passes the examinations described in OAR 877-020-0008 (Licensing Requirements).

(2)

If the board accepts a voluntary surrender of a certificate or license after a complaint was filed with the board against the holder while the complaint is pending, the board may issue a new certificate or license under conditions that take into account the circumstances of the surrender and may attach conditions to the certificate or license, including conditions contained in a final order if one was served in connection with the surrender. The board will not reinstate a license or certificate that has been surrendered. A person who surrenders a certificate or license may apply for a new license three years after the date the surrender was accepted by the board.

(3)

If the board revokes or refuses to renew a certificate or license, other than for the holder’s failure to timely apply for renewal, the former holder may reapply at the expiration of three years from the time it was revoked. The board may issue a new license upon finding the applicant is fit to practice social work and otherwise meets the requirements for licensure and may attach conditions to the certificate or license, including conditions contained in a final order if one was served in connection with the revocation.
