Helping Pennsylvania Veterans Find Work

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

A bill that would require state agencies to take into account service members’ military service, education, training and military experience for licensing or certification requirements, was recently signed into law. 

House Bill 157, which is now Act 23 of 2015, is intended to prevent service members from having to duplicate state certification requirements so that they can transition to a civilian career faster and with greater ease. 

Many service members have a hard time finding jobs after the military because of onerous and redundant training and certification requirements. This law will ensure that service members’ military education and training are taken into account when applying for certain professional licenses and credentials.
