PURPOSE: This rule requires the board to accept
evidence of military education, training, or service to be applied toward the
requirements for licensure.
(1) Any applicant for licensure may, as part
of the evidence of meeting the requisite educational and/or training
requirements for licensure, submit evidence of military experience as a member
of the military.
(2) The board
shall review the evidence submitted and, if appropriate, make additional
inquiry of the applicant to determine the scope and duties of the military
experience to determine whether the military experience shall be counted
towards the qualifications for licensure.
(3) In its review of the military experience,
the board shall evaluate the content and nature of the military experience to
determine whether that military experience shall count towards the education,
training, or service requirements for licensure. The board shall construe
liberally the military experience in determining whether it will count towards
the education, training, or service requirements for licensure.
(4) "Military experience" shall mean
education, training, or service completed by an applicant while a member of the
United States armed forces or reserves, the national guard of any state, the
military reserves of any state, or the naval militia of any state.
