Issuance of certificate or license
(1) The board shall issue to each qualified applicant a certificate or license in form and size as shall be prescribed by the board.

Within six (6) months after the renewal date, the former certificate or license holder shall be reinstated by complying with all appropriate renewal requirements and paying a late fee not to exceed ($200).
