(a) Ineligible Applicants. An applicant who is found ineligible to sit for the examination shall be notified of those areas in which he or she did not meet the program's requirements. An applicant may supplement his or her application to correct deficiencies, but such supplemental materials must be submitted within fourteen days of the date of notification of ineligibility. Should a Certification Committee determine that an applicant is ineligible to sit for the examination, that applicant has fourteen days to apply to the Board for de novo review pursuant to the Board's Regulations.
(b) Duration of Eligibility; Qualified Applicants. An applicant found eligible must successfully complete the examination requirements as found in Part Two and Three of the Board's Regulations within eighteen months of notification of eligibility to sit for the examination. If eligibility expires, the applicant must file a new application for certification. When an applicant has compiled with the requirements of Rule 1:39-2 and 3 and the Board's Regulations, the Certification Committee shall forward the file to the Board, which shall review the file and make such further inquiry, pursuant to its Regulations, as it deems necessary and appropriate. Thereafter, the Board shall determine within a reasonable time whether the applicant is qualified for certification in the designated area of practice.
