(225 ILCS 30/40) (from Ch. 111, par. 8401-40)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
    Sec. 40. Examinations. The Department shall authorize examinations of applicants for a license under this Act at the times and places that it may determine. The examination of applicants shall be of a character to give a fair test of the qualifications of the applicant to practice dietetics and nutrition services. The Department or its designated testing service shall provide initial screening to determine eligibility of applicants for examination.
    Applicants for examination shall be required to pay, either to the Department or the designated testing service, a fee covering the cost of providing the examination. Failure to appear for the examination on the scheduled date, at the time and place specified, after the applicant's application for examination has been received and acknowledged by the Department or the designated testing service, shall result in the forfeiture of the examination fee.
    If an applicant neglects, fails, or refuses to take an examination or fails to pass an examination for a license under this Act within 3 years after filing an application, the application shall be denied. However, the applicant may thereafter make a new application accompanied by the required fee and shall meet the requirements for licensure in force at the time of making the new application.
    The Department may employ consultants for the purpose of preparing and conducting examinations.
