Section 34-41-12

Issuance of license.

(a) Upon payment of a license fee the board shall issue a biennial license to any applicant who has satisfactorily met all the requirements of this chapter. Licenses shall show the full name of the licensee, give a serial number, and shall be signed by both the chair and secretary-treasurer of the board under the seal of the board. The issuance of a license by the board shall be prima facie evidence that the person named therein is entitled to all the rights and privileges of a licensed professional geologist while the license remains in full force and effect.

(b) Each license expires on a biennial basis or at another interval determined by the board unless the license is renewed. An application for renewal shall be filed with the board and shall be accompanied by the renewal fee prescribed by the board. A license which has expired for failure to renew may be restored only after application and payment of the prescribed restoration fee, provided the renewal applicant meets all other provisions established by the board.

(c) An applicant for renewal of a license shall have satisfactorily maintained continuing education requirements as specified by the board.

(d) A new license to replace any license lost, destroyed, or mutilated may be issued subject to the rules of the board and payment of a fee established by the board.
