  • § 3014. Licensure by endorsement

    (a) The Board may at any time issue a license, upon payment of the required fee, if the applicant presents evidence that he or she:

    (1) is licensed or certified to practice psychology in another jurisdiction in which the requirements for such licensing or certification are, in the judgment of the Board, substantially equivalent to those required by this chapter and the rules of the Board;

    (2) is a diplomat in good standing of the American Board of Professional Psychology;

    (3) holds evidence of professional qualification from an individual certification program acceptable to the Board; and

    (4) has taken and passed an examination on the Vermont laws and rules governing the practice of psychology.

    (b) The Board may at any time issue a license, upon payment of the required fee, to an applicant who is licensed as a psychologist at the doctoral level in another jurisdiction of the United States or Canada in which the requirements for licensure are not, in the judgment of the Board, substantially equivalent to those required by this chapter and the rules of the Board if the applicant:

    (1) Is in good standing with no pending charges as verified to the Board by the licensing authorities of all jurisdictions in which the applicant has held a license;

    (2) Has practiced as a licensed psychologist at the doctoral level for an average of at least 1,000 hours per year for a minimum of seven years.
