A new law (SB 657) directs the Board for Waterworks and Wastewater Works and Onsite Sewage System Professionals (Board) to extend the interim license expiration date for currently licensed Alternative Onsite Sewage System (AOSS) Installers under limited circumstances. If you hold a valid, non-expired Interim AOSS Installer license, you may be eligible* to extend the term of that interim license an additional six (6) months, in order to engage in work while having more time to take and pass the licensing exam.
To be eligible for the limited-time license extension, the applicant must submit a completed Exam & License Application—with application fee and documentation verifying qualifications to take the exam—so the Board receives it BEFORE the individual’s current interim license expires.
After qualifications are verified, Board staff will issue an updated Interim AOSS Installer license with the extended expiration date (an additional six (6) months). Board staff also will send an Examination Eligibility Letter to the applicant and the exam vendor (PSI). The applicant is then responsible for contacting PSI to schedule the exam and paying the exam fee. Once the applicant passes the exam (PSI will transmit scores automatically), Board staff issues the ‘regular’ (non-interim) AOSS Installer license with the standard two-year term. If the applicant fails to take and pass the exam in that six month time period, before the extended interim license expires, that individual will no longer be legally authorized to perform services.
Board staff will still process the License Application as usual and advise applicants of exam eligibility. Such individuals are not, however, legally authorized to perform services under an expired/invalid license.
