That is a huge can of worms across the board, although if you dig in to state laws and regulations, you will find a number of licensed occupations that have reciprocity with military training (sometimes full reciprocity, and then sometimes with the need to just take a test, and sometimes with a brief transition course).

A specific example is Police Officers. Many states have a standard transition process in place. For instance, in Texas, a former MP or 18-series simply has to attend the "refresher" type course and TX law update course (same requirements for PO's transferring from other states).

Keep in mind that the intent of the Veteran EMT Support Act is to provide for a streamlined standardized transition pathway (similar to what I have described above regarding LE), not just blanket equivalency/reciprocity.

The focus here is on the medical aspect because of the MASSIVE map of medically under-served areas throughout the country that experience healthcare provider shortages.

A local nursing school has a vets-to-RN program; almost any enlisted medical MOS will net you credits and get you in the door.

Thanks Pos.

So a former MP can transition to Marine Corps Civilian Law Enforcement Program (MCCLEP) Officer https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/427579800 or https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/427580300
(For those with law enforcement experience, training may be waived.)

That's where I went to nursing school, but way before this program. I will say 9/11 happened while I was there and when my reserve unit was spooling up for Iraq they went out of their way to make it so I would still graduate on time.

I know a former 18D in the program now, if you (or anyone) want a contact, let me know.

that is good news for military spouses

from https://www.defense.gov/News/News-Re...-should-be-co/

A letter signed by all three military service secretaries outlining ways state leadership can better support service members was sent to the National Governors Association on Friday, Feb. 23.

The letter encouraged state leadership to look at the quality of schools near bases and if reciprocity of professional licenses is available for military families.

A copy of the full letter, signed by Secretary of the Army Mark T. Esper, Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer, and Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson can be found below:

Excellent. A step in the right direction.
