32-1524. Application; deficiencies in application; interview; withdrawal; release of information; temporary certificate
A. Each applicant for licensure or certification shall file a verified completed application in the form and style required and supplied by the board accompanied by the appropriate application fee prescribed in section 32-1527. The filing of an application grants the board the authority to obtain information from any licensing board or agency in any state, district, territory or county of the United States or another country, from the Arizona criminal justice information system in the department of public safety and from the federal bureau of investigation. The fingerprints submitted shall be used to obtain a state and federal criminal records check pursuant to section 41-1750 and P.L. 92-544. The department of public safety is authorized to exchange this fingerprint data with the federal bureau of investigation.
B. The application shall require the applicant to submit evidence, credentials and other proof necessary to satisfy the board that the applicant meets the requirements of a completed application.
C. The application shall contain the oath of the applicant that:
1. All information contained in the application and evidence submitted with it are true and correct.
2. The credentials submitted were not procured by fraud or misrepresentation or any mistake of which the applicant is aware.
3. The applicant is the lawful holder of the credentials.
D. All applications submitted to the board and any attendant evidence, credentials or other proof submitted with an application are the property of the board and part of the permanent record of the board and shall not be returned to a withdrawing applicant.
E. The board shall promptly inform an applicant, in writing, of the deficiencies, if any, in the application which prevent it from being considered by the board as a completed application.
F. The board may interview the applicant to determine whether the application is sufficient or whether the applicant otherwise qualifies for licensure or for a certificate.
G. Applications are considered withdrawn on any of the following conditions:
1. Request of the applicant.
2. Failure of the applicant to appear for an interview with the board except for good cause being shown.
3. Failure to submit a completed application within one year from the date of the mailing by the board of a statement to the applicant of the deficiencies in the application under subsection E of this section.
4. Failure to show, within one year from the interview provided for in subsection F of this section, that the completed application is true and correct.
H. Applicants for a license or for a certificate to engage in a clinical training program, a preceptorship training program or an internship training program shall submit a fingerprint card in the manner required by the board.
I. The executive director may issue a temporary certificate to engage in a clinical training program to an applicant whose application is complete except for the completion of a fingerprint check and criminal background analysis. If the criminal background analysis shows the applicant has not been convicted of any felony or any misdemeanor involving a crime of moral turpitude, the executive director shall convert the temporary certificate into a certificate to engage in a clinical training program without any further action by the applicant. The board shall not charge a fee for a temporary certificate.
