Licensure by Endorsement/Military Spouses

By CSG Committee on Suggested State Legislation

This Act allows military-trained applicants who have been awarded a military occupational specialty and military-spouse applicants who are licensed in another jurisdiction to receive certain occupational licenses in this state. The applicants must meet requirements, either in the military or in another jurisdiction, that are substantially equivalent to or exceed this state’s requirements for licensure. The Act generally requires state occupational licensing boards to issue occupational licenses to military-trained applicants and military-spouse applicants who meet this state’s statutory requirements. The Act authorizes licensing boards in the state to issue temporary practice permits to such applicants until a license is granted or a notice to deny a license is issued.
