Current law authorizes a regulator of a profession or occupation
to approve an application for licensure, certification, registration, or
enrollment by endorsement, reciprocity, or transfer through the
occupational credential portability program (program). The bill amends
the program by:

  • Removing the requirement that an applicant seeking a
credential through the program must prove the applicant's
substantially equivalent experience or credentials;
  • Adding a military occupational specialty to the types of
occupational credentials that qualify a person for a
credential through the program; and
  • Requiring an applicant to have held the license,
certification, registration, enrollment, or military
occupational specialty in another state for at least one year.
