§ 850-X-7-.01. Display Of License
(1) Licenses or certificates are issued when the applicant's credentials have been verified and the appropriate examination has been passed. Licenses or certificates will be sent to the licensees by first class mail.
(2) License or certification issuance dates are assigned on the basis of completion of the credential verification process.
(3) Section 34-30 -28 Code of Ala. (1991) requires that licenses be displayed. Such display provides the consumers of social work services with a way of recognizing duly recognized practitioners. Therefore, the license to practice social work issued by the Board shall be displayed in the licensee's principal place of practice. Certification for private independent practice shall also be displayed in the certificate holder's principal place of private practice. Failure to do so on the part of the licensee or the certificate holder may result in the suspension of the license for a period not to exceed ninety days.(Repealed and Replaced: Filed October 31, 1997; Operative December 5, 1997; effective January 1, 1998 (See Rule 850-X-1-.19).
