On January 1, 2014, the Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing and its corresponding boards and commissions will begin examining the credentials of related military experience of those who submit documentation of military training, skills, and experience along with an application for temporary licensure. Upon determination of equivalency, relevant military experience will be credited for licensing requirements and educational credit will be granted for appropriate training. Military personnel who wish to apply using this program may submit Form #08-4633 and accompanying credentials with their license application.
Alaska law also allows licensed members of the military who are deployed to combat zones, danger pay posts, or hazardous duty areas to defer licensing requirements. Military personnel who meet this requirement may use Form #08-4581 to request this exemption.
In addition to offering these programs for service members, spouses of active duty military personnel with Alaska orders may request that their temporary or courtesy licensing applications be expedited by attaching Form #08-4580 to their license application.
Before submitting one of the forms below, please read the authorizing statutes of these programs and for the profession in which you plan to work to ensure familiarity with Alaska law.”
