You can download them from the Forms & Literature page or call the Board office and one will be mailed to you.
 

How do I learn if someone is a licensed vocational rehabilitation counselor?

Please review the Board's web site under Licensee Database to know the status of a vocational rehabilitation counselor. You may also contact the Board's office to obtain this information.

 

I am provisionally licensed counselor and am not working at the moment. What do I do?

You can go on Inactive status for up to one year. We must receive something in writing asking to go on Inactive status. You must go back to work in the field by the end of one year or lose your license.
 

I used to hold a license and let it lapse. Can I get another one?

You must go through the whole application process again. You will need to send an application to the Board and wait for the Board to approve it. The Board meets each quarter and decides if applicants meet the requirements. Even if you were fully licensed, you will need to go through the supervision process all over again.
 

When will the next Exam be given?

The LLPVRC Board of Examiners utilizes the CRC exam as it's licensure exam. We follow the CRC Exam schedule. Exams are given twice a year, in April and October. The LRC Board Office will schedule you to take the exam. Please submit your written request to take the exam to the Board Office by fax, email, or USPS.

NOTE: Just because you ar taking the CRC exam does not translate to becoming CRC if you are not taking the exam for that purpose. You will need to register separately with CRC and meet their criteria if that is your intent.
