The bill became law and the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) had the responsibility for developing the Rules and Regulations to implement the bill and to gear up to accept LPCC applications.
Application forms for grandparenting, intern registration, out-of-state applicants and traditional licensure became available from the BBS.
Applications for grandparenting must have been received by the BBS. Applicants will have 12 months from the date of their letter of deficiencies from the BBS to complete deficiencies in coursework, years of experience, supervised hours and examinations. At the end of that 12-month period, the application is closed, if it is not complete.
The first LPCC licenses were awarded.
There are no deadlines for out-of-state applications, intern registration or traditional licensure applications, although once an application is submitted the BBS will inform the applicant of deadlines for that specific application.
