New Licensing Law Helps Vets in NC 


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.
