Act 27 of 1946 (1st Ex. Sess.)
35.581 License or qualification for trade, occupation, or profession; service in armed forces not deemed disqualifying interruption; accepting periods of training and practical experience in armed forces; time limitation.
A person seeking license or qualification for a trade, occupation, or profession under the laws of this state and whose period of training, study, apprenticeship, or practicable experience is interrupted by, or who has not entered training, study, apprenticeship, or practical experience because of service in the armed forces during any period of war or emergency condition as defined in Act No. 190 of the Public Acts of 1965, as amended, being sections 35.61 and 35.62 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, and whose service was honorably terminated, shall be entitled to license or qualification under the laws covering his qualification or licensing in force at the time of entrance into the armed forces, subsequent legislation notwithstanding. Service in the armed forces shall not be deemed to be a disqualifying interruption of a required period of training, study, apprenticeship, or practical experience, and a board of examiners or other qualification board under the laws of this state may accept periods of training and practical experience in the armed forces in place of the required periods of training, study, apprenticeship, or practical experience under the laws of this state where the board finds the standards and kinds of work or training performed in the armed forces to be substantially the same as the standards and kinds required under the laws of this state. If an application for benefits under this act is made to the respective board of examiners or other qualification board within 6 months after the applicant's release from the armed forces or within 6 months after the effective date of this act whichever is the later date.
