§ 5-1-10. Issuance and renewal of certificates.
(a) Upon payment of the fees required by § 5-1-11, an individual who has complied with §§ 5-1-8 or 5-1-9 is entitled to a certificate of registration indicating that he or she is qualified to practice architecture in this state. Each certificate of registration shall contain the name of the individual to whom it was issued and his or her date of birth.
(b) Every certificate of registration is valid for a period of two (2) years and expires on the last day of December of each odd-numbered year following its issuance. An architect may renew his or her certificate of registration by paying the renewal fee or fees required by § 5-1-11. An architect who fails to renew his or her certificate of registration prior to December 31 may not thereafter renew his or her certificate of registration except upon payment of the renewal fee or fees and the additional fee required by § 5-1-11. The board may require all applicants for renewal to provide the board with information, including, but not limited to, a brief outline setting forth the professional activities of any applicant during a period in which a certificate of registration has lapsed and other evidence of the continued competence and good character of the applicant, all as the board deems necessary.
