The requirements described in section (1) of this rule are applicable to a licensed clinical social worker who:
Has practiced clinical social work under the authority of a license for twenty years;
Has not been disciplined by a licensing authority during the prior 15 years of social work practice; and
Engages in the practice of social work for not more than 500 hours a year.
A person subject to the provisions of section (1) of this rule may not apply for an inactive license.
The board retains the authority to reduce the requirement set out in section (2)(a) above upon request from an applicant and on a showing of good cause. For example, the board may reduce the number of years that a licensed clinical social worker must have practiced to qualify for reduced fees under this rule upon a showing that the licensee began his or her career later in life.
