§ 870-X-2-.03. Requirements For Licensure
(1) Upon receipt of the licensure application and payment of the licensing fee, the Board may grant licensure to any person certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association that is, holding a currently valid Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) or an equivalent certification from an accrediting Association or Academy in the area for which licensure is applied. A license may be granted in either speech-language pathology or audiology. Licenses in both speech-language pathology and audiology may be granted to an applicant who requests both licenses and who is certified in both areas. The fee will be twice that of a license in a single area.
(2) Persons without the CCC (not holding a currently valid Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) or an equivalent certification from another accrediting Association or Academy must meet the following:
(a) Education Requirements. Submit official transcripts from one or more accredited colleges or universities approved by the Board, showing evidence of possession of at least a Master's degree, the completion of academic requirements preceding the Fourth-Year Internship in Au.D. programs or the equivalent in speech-language pathology or audiology. The word "equivalent" as stated in the Code of Ala. 1975, § 34-28 A-1 is defined in these Rules and Regulations as being equal to or greater than requirements for the Master's degree or Doctorate of Audiology degree.
(b) Practicum Requirements. Provide documentation (letter on university/college letterhead with original signature) from the director of the training program that the individual meets the clinical requirements commensurate with the training program and degree (specifically defined in the document). The practical experience was obtained under the qualified supervision within the training institution or one of its cooperative training programs.
