Preparation of written examination.
The examination questions will be prepared by the chief boiler inspector. All examinations must be written unless the applicant is unable to read, or write, in which case the examination will be oral for a special or second class license. The right to an oral examination for a first or chief class license shall be determined by the chief boiler inspector based on the applicant's ability to demonstrate reading comprehension of statutes, rules, technical boiler operation manuals, and safety warnings. Decisions of the chief boiler inspector regarding application for oral examination may be appealed to the commissioner under part 5225.3200. A written record of the examination shall be made, and examination papers will be kept on file for a period of at least one year.
No new license of any class will be granted to any applicant who fails to obtain a score of at least 70 percent in an examination.
Effect of failure.
Applicants who fail to pass an examination shall not be eligible to take another examination for the same class of license for ten days.
Failure of an applicant to obtain a passing score will not affect the status of any license currently held, but the fee paid for the examination will not be refunded.
