RULE §745.9026What special considerations can Licensing give to a military member, military spouse, or military veteran that applies for an administrator's license?

(a) The following special considerations are applicable to a military member, military spouse, or military veteran that applies for an administrator's license:

  (1) In addition to Licensing's authority to waive prerequisites for an administrator's license in §745.8913 of this subchapter (relating to Can my licensure in another state qualify me for an administrator's license?), the Associate Commissioner for Licensing or a designee may waive any prerequisite to get an administrator's license if you held an administrator's license in Texas within five years preceding the application date and your credentials provide compelling justification that your experience and education qualifies you to act as an administrator;

  (2) The Associate Commissioner for Licensing or a designee must:

    (A) Credit a military member, military spouse, or military veteran for verified military service, training, education, or clinical or professional experience that meets a requirement for a license under this subchapter; and

    (B) Substitute any demonstrated competency a military member, military spouse, or military veteran has that the Associate Commissioner or a designee determines to meet the qualifications; and

  (3) Licensing will waive the application and examination fees for:

    (A) A military member, military spouse, or military veteran whose military service, training, education, or experience substantially meets the requirements for a license under this subchapter; or

    (B) A military member, military spouse, or military veteran who holds a current license issued by another state whose license requirements are substantially equivalent to the requirements for a license under this subchapter as determined by Licensing under §745.8914 of this subchapter (relating to How does Licensing determine whether another state’s licensing requirements are substantially equivalent to the requirements for an administrator’s license under this subchapter?).

(b) If Licensing issues an administrator's license to you under subsection (a)(1) or (2) of this section, the license will be a full license and not a provisional license.

(c) To be eligible for any special consideration under subsection (a)(1) or (2) of this section, you must not be prohibited from receiving or continuing to maintain an administrator's license, as specified in §745.775(c) of this chapter (relating to How may a criminal conviction or a child abuse or neglect finding affect my ability to receive or maintain an administrator's license?).
