Subchapter 003 : PROFESSIONAL REGULATION(Cite as: 3 V.S.A. § 136a)
§ 136a. Uniform process for endorsement from other states
(a) Notwithstanding any statute or rule to the contrary and except as provided in subsection (b) of this section, all professions attached to the Office shall have an endorsement process that requires not more than three years of practice in good standing in another jurisdiction within the United States, regardless of whether that jurisdiction has licensing requirements substantially similar to those of this State.
(b) Any profession determining that three years of demonstrated practice in another jurisdiction is not adequately protective of the public shall provide its rationale to the Director, who may propose any necessary statutory or rule amendments in order to implement more restrictive requirements for endorsement.
(c) The Director may issue to an endorsement applicant a waiver of the profession’s practice requirement if there is a showing that the waiver follows State policy and the public is adequately protected.
