Under the CFTA, when a worker has conditions, limitations or restrictions on his/her license and applies for certification in another jurisdiction, the regulatory authority must make a reasonable effort to certify the worker with equivalent conditions, limitations or restrictions.
However, if the regulatory authority does not have a provision for issuing an equivalent conditional, limited or restricted license, the regulatory authority may refuse to certify the worker, or the regulatory authority may offer a conditional/restricted license with a requirement for the worker to upgrade. The regulatory authority is not required to create equivalent license categories, but may choose to do so.
