§ 4606. Application
(a) A person who desires to be licensed as an auctioneer shall apply to the Director, in writing, on a form furnished by the Director, accompanied by payment of the required fee. As a prerequisite to licensure, an applicant for licensure as an auctioneer shall have:
(1) completed a course of instruction at an auctioneering school approved by the Director with course requirements consisting of at least 40 clock hours; or
(2) completed an apprenticeship of at least 250 hours of experience obtained within one calendar year that includes active participation in at least six auctions, including bid calling, under the direction and supervision of an auctioneer licensed and in good standing with this State or the state in which he or she is licensed and who has been in practice a minimum of three years. Such proof may be in the form of a sworn affidavit from the supervising auctioneer, including information as the Director may reasonably require on forms provided by the Director. Auctioneer apprentices shall contact the Office for the appropriate forms prior to beginning the apprenticeship. Registered apprentices may perform auctioneering incidental to their apprenticeship under the direct supervision of a licensed auctioneer.
(b)(1) The Director shall license otherwise qualified applicants who have obtained a license in another jurisdiction that has licensure requirements substantially equivalent to those in this State.
(2) For experienced applicants from states without licensure, the Director may allow related education, training, or experience of the applicant on a case-by-case basis to be a substitute for all or part of the apprenticeship requirement.
