As the laws are currently written, before October 1, 2018 an employee can receive a license without completion of a training program. However, on or after October 1, 2018, all new employees and any employee who has had a license expire will need to apply for a new license from the ABLE Commission; the employee will receive a temporary 30-day license before their permanent license is issued. Once the temporary license is obtained, they will have 14 days to complete an approved training program authorized by the ABLE Commission and receive proof of completion.
- Type in the name as presented on ABLE license application (the certificate will self-date)
- Once filled out, print the certificate
- An employee's supervisor MUST sign the certificate for verification purposes
- A copy of the signed training certificate MUST be filed at the location(s) the employee works at along with the ABLE issued license
