The administration of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has announced that 31 regulatory boards have adopted new procedures, which will enable members of the military to transfer their skills to civilian life. Each board will:

  • Accept relevant education, training and service completed by an applicant for licensure, as a member of the armed forces or the military reserves toward the qualifications required for licensure;
  • Accept relevant education, training and service completed by an applicant for licensure as a member of the military toward the qualifications required for licensure;  
  • Allow for the trade or professional license of a member of the military who is on active duty to remain valid until they are released from active duty, and for 90 days thereafter; and
  • Expedite the licensure process for military spouses who are licensed in other states and have left employment there to accompany a spouse relocated to the Commonwealth due to a military transfer.
