The bill allows professional licensing boards to recognize military education, training and experience when reviewing credentials and issuing licenses and aims to assist service personnel and their spouses in obtaining and/or renewing professional licenses when transitioning from active duty. The bill further allows boards to issue service personnel temporary licenses when he or she holds a valid license from another state. The current Delaware law only allows Boards to do so for military spouses.
