If the applicant is certified in another state or territory, the temporary permit shall be issued for not more than 90 days.

The holder shall immediately return the permit to the board.

An authorization and release form must be signed by the applicant authorizing the release of the criminal history record to the board. The fingerprint card, authorization and release form, and fee for the criminal background check must accompany the application for a temporary permit. A permanent license may not be issued until the criminal background check is complete.
