Analysis prepared by the Dept. of Regulation and Licensing
Statutes authorizing promulgation: ss. 15.08 (5) (b), 227.11 (2) and 457.03 (3)
Statute interpreted: s. 457.08 (1) (b), (2) (b), (3) (d) and (4) (d)
The Social Worker Section of the Examining Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors issues four different types of social work certification, based on an applicant's education and experience. An individual who has received one type of certification may later apply for another type. All applicants are currently required to take and pass a state jurisprudence examination. The proposed change would eliminate the need to retake the state jurisprudence examination if the applicant passed the examination within the previous five years.
Text of Rule
SECTION 1. SFC 1.05 (7) is created to read:
SFC 1.05 (7) An applicant for certification as a social worker, advanced practice social worker, independent social worker, independent clinical social worker, marriage and family therapist, or professional counselor need not take part II of the examination if within the 5 years preceding the date of application, the applicant took and passed part II in the process of applying for and receiving another certification from the board.
1. The anticipated fiscal effect on the fiscal liability and revenues of any local unit of government of the proposed rule is: $0.00.
2. The projected anticipated state fiscal effect during the current biennium of the proposed rule is: $0.00.
3. The projected net annualized fiscal impact on state funds of the proposed rule is: $0.00.
Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
These proposed rules will be reviewed by the department through its Small Business Review Advisory Committee to determine whether there will be an economic impact on a substantial number of small businesses, as defined in s. 227.114 (1) (a), Stats.
