(a) An applicant who has served in the Armed Forces of the United States (Armed Forces) and who does not meet all of the training, education, and experience requirements for locksmith licensure under 13:31A-2.1 may apply to the Committee for recognition of the applicant's training, education, or experience received while serving as a member of the Armed Forces, which the Committee shall consider together with any training, education, and experience obtained outside of the Armed Forces, for determining substantial equivalence to the training, education, and experience required for locksmith licensure.
(b) The Committee shall issue a locksmith license to the applicant, if the applicant presents evidence to the Committee that:
1. The applicant has been honorably discharged from active military service;
2. The relevant training, experience, and education the applicant has received in the military, together with any training, education, and experience obtained outside of the military is substantially equivalent in scope and character to the training, experience, and education required for licensure under 13:31A-2.1.
i. An applicant seeking credit for military training and experience shall submit to the Committee the applicant's Verification of Military Experience and Training (VMET) Document, DD Form 2586 or a successor form, as amended and supplemented.

An applicant seeking credit for education courses completed while in the military shall submit to the Committee, a Joint Services Transcript of his or her education for a determination that the education courses completed is substantially equivalent in level, scope, and intent to the coursework requirements under 13:31A-2.1. For the purpose of determining substantial equivalence of the applicant's military education, the Committee shall consider only those courses relevant to the provision of locksmithing services that have been evaluated by the American Council on Education for substantial equivalence to civilian postsecondary curricula; and
3. The applicant complies with all other requirements for locksmith licensure, including, but not limited to, successful completion of the locksmith examination as set forth in 13:31A-2.3.

(d) If the applicant's military training, education, or experience, or a portion thereof, is deemed not to be substantially equivalent to that required for locksmith licensure, the Committee shall credit whatever portion of the military training, education, or experience that is substantially equivalent towards meeting the requirements under 13:31A-2.1 for the issuance of the locksmith license.
(e) Satisfactory evidence of such education, training, or experience will be assessed on a-case-by-case basis.
