PERSONNEL SERVICE LICENSES

584-044-0003

Personnel Service Licensure Under Superseded Standards

Upon filing a correct and complete application in form and manner prescribed by the commission, a qualified applicant may be granted a Basic Personnel Service License with counselor or psychologist endorsement, issued for three years plus time to the applicant's next birth date and renewable under OAR 584-048. Such an applicant must have originally enrolled in a basic counselor or basic psychologist education program under standards superseded by 21st century licensure and be found in the judgment of the commission subject to hardship if issued a 21st century initial license instead of a basic license. If the initial license is judged preferable, the applicant will not be required to add course work to the basic program, although institutions may make appropriate substitutions for partial updating. Recipients of a basic personnel service license may pursue either a standard license (see below) or a continuing license (see OAR 584-070).
