Rule Rule 877-020-0055
Return to Active Status for Licensees


(1)

The holder of an inactive certificate or license may submit a written request to the board to return to active status.

(2)

As a condition of approving the request, the board may require the holder to complete continuing education in specified topics. Normally, the board will not impose a requirement to complete continuing education if the period of inactive status is less than two years.

(3)

As a condition of approving the request, the board may require the holder to work under a plan of practice and supervision, or to meet other requirements that demonstrate the holder’s fitness before re-activating the license. The requirement to work under a plan of practice and supervision is based on the candidate’s circumstances, including the candidate’s practice experience and the duration of the inactive period. Normally, the board will not impose a requirement to work under a plan of practice and supervision if the period of inactive status is less than five years.

(4)

The holder of an inactive license must pass the examination on Oregon statutes and rules described in OAR 877-020-0008 (Licensing Requirements)(5)(a) if the request to return to active status is received by the board more than 36 months after the board notified the holder that the license was inactive.
