Veterans Application Assistance Program
I don’t think too many people are aware of this CSLB program for US Military Veterans. It hasn’t been publicized very much, but it is nice to see that they are giving those of us who are veterans a break. If you’re a vet applying for a license, I would highly recommend that you tell the CSLB you are a veteran and take advantage of this program.
CSLB offers a Veterans Application Assistance Program for those who are transitioning from military service to civilian employment. In many cases, veterans possess transferable skills to help meet minimum experience and training requirements for state contractor licensure. This program offers priority services to veteran applicants by evaluating transferable military experience and training, as well as education.CSLB assists veterans by providing:Program technicians specially trained to evaluate transferable military training and experience from all branches of the military that meet minimum licensure requirements;Automatic priority application processing;Evaluation of college transcripts to help verify acceptable educational credit in addition to military experience and training;Direct telephone and email contact with CSLB staff
