(d) Upon application for the seventh temporary license,
the Board shall perform an evaluation of an applicant's progress toward
certification in a medical physicist area of specialty. This evaluation
will include, but is not limited to:
(1) information on the applicant's current participation
in any medical physicist training program;
(2) identification of the medical physicist specialty/specialties
an applicant is working toward;
(3) the number of certification examinations taken
during the previous six years and the results of said examinations;
(4) any medical physicist certification(s) successfully
completed during the previous six years. If this evaluation determines
that satisfactory progress has not been made toward completion of
a medical physicist certification, an application for an additional
temporary license may be denied.
(e) The board may, in its discretion, allow a holder
of a Temporary License to apply for more than twelve licenses.

or the public. The board may audit supervision plans for compliance
with this section.
(h) A supervisor shall supervise no more than two temporary
license holders or their full time equivalents, unless approved by

training may supervise more than two temporary license holders without
approval by the executive director.
(i) A supervisor shall assume responsibility for all
of the work conducted under his or her supervision. A supervisor shall
approve and sign all formal work product of the temporary license
