Maine's Occupational Licensing Initiative

Maine's Department of Professional and Financial Regulation (DPFR) leads an initiative in the State of Maine to accelerate the licensing process for veterans. 

Individuals who have military experience and training and who wish to obtain an occupational license receive appropriate credit for their military training and experience. The program allows for quicker, easier licensing for veterans who have demonstrable military experience in the areas of:

  • Boiler
  • Electrical
  • Fuel
  • Plumbing

DPFR has flexibility in evaluating and crediting military experience towards licenses and continuing education requirements, eliminating the need for veterans to undergo duplicative and expensive training.
