I had already registered online in Pearson Vue but I think I'm not yet eligible to take the test. Is there an expiration date for my registration at PV? I received a letter from CA BON requesting for new requirements such as:... Read More

    @ Daftspunk,

    My wife's friends encountered the same problem. Her husband, who took the same courses she did but got his application to the boards in Nov 2011 was able to take and pass the test in California. She, on the other hand, waited until Jan 2012 and was unable to take it(concurrency). Even though they went to the same school at the same time in the Phils. She then applied to New York and was able to take/pass the test and is working there now.

    @calirobThat's great that it all worked out for your friend there in NY. Guess it's just a matter of giving it a shot and applying there and taking chances. Is your wife enrolled in a school yet to take those deficiencies? Do you have any info bout the CSU Fresno program? Or any other school?

    The husband applied into CA before the CA BON established some kind of cut-off month and year to accept any applications before they started the concurrency enforcment, had the wife done the same, she would have been okay'd, it's just bad timing.

    The wife would not need to take the deficiency courses since she's already licensed in NY, unless she plans to endorse that license into CA, then she would need to complete the said deficient courses before the CA BON would approve the endorsement.

    Having any out of state license is NO guarantee to be endorsed into CA or any of the other 14 or so States with the concurrency enforcements. The BON's will always be based on everyone's college transcripts to see if it meets that State's requirements plus any sort of language proficiency exams.

    @daftspunk Not yet, waiting for the holidays to come to an end and for them to return to work, plan to start calling them next week. If you find out anything, pls let me know also.
    I know of two other schools, one in Fairfield and one in Fremont that are doing the same thing, but the costs are 16-18,000.00 for those two schools. One is on the approved list and the other seems to work with a school thats on the approved list. I dont have the names with me, but can post them later if you are interested.

    Nevada.....just started enforcing it recently, let some earlier applicants get their ATT. However, this 2013 year the NV BON requires the local license.

    There was a poster who got denied based on the concurrency rule, which clearly showed (in her letter from the BON) that NV has had this regulation since 1952! The year maybe a lot of our own parents were born around, give or take 5 years here and there!

    Hello, CHED, PRC and PNA, you guys fell asleep at the wheel way back them, but luckily the USA always allowed foreigners in or maybe never enforced as strongly back in those forth coming years till recently.
