If an applicant for a license under ORS 675.715 (Application) possesses the graduate degree required by ORS 675.715 (Application) but has not submitted documentation satisfactory to the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists that the applicant has the required supervised clinical experience, the applicant must register an internship plan to obtain acceptable post-degree supervised clinical experience to qualify for a license as a professional counselor or as a marriage and family therapist.


To register as a professional counselor intern or as a marriage and family therapist intern under this section, the applicant shall submit in the form and manner determined by the board:


A request for registration; and


A plan to obtain or complete the supervised clinical experience required for licensure.


The board shall register the applicant as an intern upon receipt and approval of the completed request and plan required in subsection (2) of this section.


(a) A registered intern must renew the certificate of registration annually on or before the first day of the month in which the board approved the initial registration. To renew a certificate of registration, a registered intern shall:


Submit a renewal application in the form and manner established by the board accompanied by a renewal fee pursuant to ORS 675.785 (Powers and duties of board); and


Document fulfillment of all other requirements established by the board by rule.


Failure to renew a registration within 30 days of the annual renewal date terminates the registration and the application for licensure.


Registered interns are subject to all ethical standards adopted by the board. [1997 c.269 §2; 2001 c.103 §1; 2009 c.549 §5; 2013 c.211 §3]
