(b) A person who is waiting to take the license examination required by the board, and who has not completed a practicum including 300 hours of direct client contact but has been approved by the board to complete other postgraduate experience totaling 300 hours, may apply to the board for a temporary marriage and family therapy license to practice as a licensed marriage and family therapist by:

(1) Paying a temporary license fee established by the board under K.S.A. 65-6411, and amendments thereto; and

(2) meeting the application requirements as stated in K.S.A. 65-6404(a)(1), (a)(2), (a)(4) and (a)(5), and amendments thereto, and, except for the requirement to complete a practicum or other postgraduate experience, the requirements of K.S.A. 65-6404(a)(2), and amendments thereto.

(c) (1) A temporary marriage and family therapy license may be issued by the board after the application has been reviewed and approved by the board and the applicant has paid the appropriate fee as established by the board under K.S.A. 65-6411, and amendments thereto.

(2) Absent extenuating circumstances approved by the board, a temporary license issued by the board shall expire upon the date the board issues or denies the person a license to practice marriage and family therapy or 24 months after the date of issuance of the temporary license.

(3) No temporary license shall be renewed or issued again on any subsequent application for the same license level. The preceding provision in no way limits the number of times an applicant may take the examination.

Such temporary license shall be subject to the provisions of this section in effect at the time of its issuance and shall continue to be effective until the date of expiration of the license as provided under this section at the time of issuance of such temporary license.
