The State Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology may issue a conditional license to practice speech-language pathology or audiology to an applicant who:


Except for the examination and supervised post-graduate professional practice in speech-language pathology or audiology, meets the license requirements under ORS 681.260 (Qualifications for licensure as speech-language pathologist) or 681.264 (Qualifications for licensure as audiologist); and


Demonstrates to the satisfaction of the board that for the term of the conditional license the applicant will practice speech-language pathology or audiology only under the supervision of a speech-language pathologist or audiologist under this chapter.


A conditional license expires on the first anniversary of its effective date.


The board may renew the conditional license for one additional one-year term if the holder:


Continues to meet the requirements of subsection (2) of this section;


Submits a conditional license renewal application to the board on the form that the board requires; and


Pays to the board a conditional license renewal fee established by the board. [1995 c.280 §8; 2005 c.698 §11]
