North Carolina: Occupational License Help

North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue has signed a new law that gives military spouses and veterans professionally licensed in other states the opportunity to apply for their North Carolina license without having to re-license. Regardless of occupational specialty, all military or out-of-state qualifications must meet or exceed North Carolina’s licensure standards. A licensing board will determine eligibility to qualify for licensing and certification based on training, experience and competency requirements. There are more than a 100 different occupational licensing agencies in North Carolina, and each licensing board will be required to implement the new statute within one year from the date the act becomes law. For more details, see this article.
