21 NCAC 06u .0105         TEMPORARY LICENSE

(a)  An applicant for an electrologist license who is required to take the Board's examination and has complied with Rule .0102 of this Section may request a temporary license. The request may be made with the initial application for an electrologist license or at any time thereafter. The applicant shall submit with the request a written statement by a licensed electrologist or electrology instructor that the applicant will be practicing in this individual's office and that this individual has agreed to supervise the applicant's practice. On receiving a request for a temporary license that complies with this Paragraph, the Board will issue the applicant a temporary license subject to the time limits in Paragraph (b) of this Rule.

(b)  A temporary license is valid only during the dates stated in the license. Consistent with G.S. 88A-10.1, a temporary license cannot be valid for more than six months. The Board shall begin issuing temporary licenses no sooner than five months before the date of the next scheduled examination. The Board shall stop issuing temporary licenses 30 days before that examination. All temporary licenses shall expire one month after the date of that examination.

(c)  Except as provided in Paragraph (d) of this Rule, a temporary license may not be renewed.

(d)  The holder of a temporary license who did not take the examination for which the holder was scheduled may apply to have the temporary license renewed. The applicant shall:

(1)           apply to retake the examination on the next occasion it is offered;

(2)           provide a written recommendation from the applicant's supervisor that the Board renew the applicant's temporary license;

(3)           show to the satisfaction of the Board that the applicant was unable to appear and take the examination for which the applicant was previously scheduled due to causes beyond the applicant's control.

If the Board determines that the applicant has met the requirements of this Paragraph, the Board shall renew the applicant's temporary license. The renewed temporary license shall expire six months after the date it is renewed or 30 days after the date of the next scheduled examination, whichever is shorter, and it may not be renewed again.

(e)  The holder of a temporary license shall practice only under the supervision of another licensed electrologist or electrology instructor. As used in this Rule, "supervision of another" means that the other is physically in the same establishment as the holder of the temporary license and that the acts done by the holder of the temporary license are done pursuant to the other's order, control, and approval. The holder of a temporary license shall notify the Board within five business days of any change of supervisor and shall submit to the Board within 10 business days a written statement by the new supervisor that the holder of the temporary license will be practicing in the new supervisor's establishment and that the new supervisor has agreed to supervise his or her practice.

(f)  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Rule, the Board shall not issue a temporary license to anyone who has failed the examination for licensure as an electrologist, to anyone who has previously been issued a temporary license, or to anyone whose temporary license was revoked pursuant to G.S. 88A-21.
