If the applicant's history and experience meet with the approval of the chief inspector based on the board of boiler rules approved criteria, the candidate shall be given the Washington state examination. If the applicant is accepted on the merits of these examinations or as provided for in WAC 296-104-065, and the applicant is in possession of a national board commission or API-510 certification, as appropriate, a Washington state certificate of competency will be issued by the chief inspector.

Examinations shall be held at locations and times when considered necessary by the chief inspector. The examinations may be offered four times each year, namely, the first Wednesday and following Thursday of the months of March, June, September and December.
