Increase Occupational Credential Portability

Concerning the ability of an individual to obtain an occupational credential through the occupational credential portability program.
2022 Regular Session
Professions & Occupations
Bill Summary

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.
    (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
