Eligible candidates are scheduled to take the proper examination. Examinations are given at regular intervals depending on the profession. Specific test dates are contained in the application package provided by the Department. Application packets may be downloaded from our Web site by clicking on the specific profession under "Profession Selection." Candidates passing the examination and meeting all other requirements for licensure are then licensed by the Department.

However, a license will not be issued until the Department has received and approved all documentation.
