ARCHITECTURE

 

Petition for:  Waiver of New York State requirements pertaining to acceptability of licensing examinations for licensure by endorsement.

 

Summary Statement:  The petitioners listed below are all graduates of professionally accredited architecture programs who have applied for licensure in New York.  All have achieved, at a minimum, a Bachelor of Architecture degree.  All petitioners have substantial documented licensed experience in other states.

 

          Prior to 1983, certain states did not require the Equivalency Examination (EE) or the Qualifying Test (QT) if a candidate had a degree from an accredited architecture program, and granted licensure upon passage of the Professional Examination (PE).  Prior to 1975, most states recognized the Examination Syllabus (ES).  The petitioners  passed either the national Professional Examination (PE) given prior to 1983, or portions of the national Examination Syllabus (ES) given prior to 1975.  Prior to 1983, New York State required passage of the Equivalency Examination (EE), or passage of the Qualifying Test (QT) in addition to passage of the national Professional Examination.  Each of the petitioners satisfied the examination requirement in his/her initial state of licensure by passing an acceptable licensing examination and attained licensure in that state.

 

          Section 7304(4) of Education Law and Section 69.3 of the Commissionerís Regulations require for endorsement that ďÖ an architect licensed in another state or jurisdiction as the result of successful completion of only the professional examination in use before 1983 may be granted licensure upon presentation of evidence of two years of work experience of a grade and character satisfactory to the State Board for Architecture and passage of a practical examination satisfactory to the State Board for Architecture ÖĒ

 

          The Department has no documentation of professional disciplinary actions against the petitioners.

 

          Each petitioner satisfied the examination requirement in his/her initial state of licensure and has extensive professional practice starting prior to 1983.  Since the above information illustrates evidence of competence within the profession, and in lieu of the practical examination, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Architecture recommends that the examination requirement be considered satisfied and each applicantís licensure in another state be accepted for endorsement in New York State.

Noelene Noela Daniel

Brooklyn, New York 11233

 

(Baruch College, New York, New York, Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting Public, February 2001)

 

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Ms. Daniel applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2001.  Her education at Baruch College satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months and must pass each section in no more than six attempts.  Ms. Daniel originally received conditional credit on the Accounting and Reporting (ARE) and Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) sections of the examination in November 2001.  She subsequently passed the Auditing (AUD) section in November 2003.  To retain credit for the two sections she passed in November 2001, Ms. Daniel needed to pass the fourth section, Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), by November 2004.  She did not pass FAR until November 2005.

 

          Ms. Danielís attempts to pass FAR were complicated by two factors that have generally been recognized as being problematic since implementation of the computer-based CPA exam in April 2004.  The first factor is late score release.  Ms. Daniel took the FAR section of the computer based exam for the first time on August 31, 2004.  While candidates who tested in the July/August 2004 window were told that scores would be released by mid October, in actuality, scores were not released until the first week of November.  This meant that Ms. Daniel had insufficient time, only three weeks, in which to prepare to take the FAR section during the October/November 2004 testing window.  She did attempt the FAR section on November 30, 2004 and failed again.  The second factor that Ms. Daniel grappled with was the technological format of the exam under CBT. The CBT contains simulations that use spreadsheet and word processing functions that operate very differently than those in commonly used software programs.  Exam Review courses did not cover these differences.  Candidates transitioning from paper and pencil exam found that they lost considerable time during the exam trying to master the unfamiliar functions.

 


In November 2005, Ms. Daniel passed the FAR section of the examination; however, she needed two additional attempts and an additional 12 months beyond that required in regulation. Ms. Daniel asks that her passing scores be accepted as the equivalent of passing scores earned within 36 months and six attempts as allowed in Regulations.  Based on the unusual circumstances caused by the late reporting of scores and her difficulty adapting to the new exam format, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports her request.

Stephen W. Gingery

Rahway, New Jersey 07065-3535

 

(State University of New York College at Brockport, Brockport, New York, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, May 1995)

 

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Mr. Gingery applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2002.  His education at the State University of New York College at Brockport satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months.  Mr. Gingery originally received conditional credit on the Auditing (AUD) and Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) sections of the examination in November 2002.  To retain credit for these sections, Mr. Gingery needed to pass the Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR) and Accounting and Reporting (ARE) sections by November 2005.   When the examination converted from paper and pencil administration to computerized administration in the spring of 2004, the Regulation (REG) section of the computerized examination replaced the ARE section.

 

          Mr. Gingery encountered administrative difficulties when he attempted to register to sit for the FAR and REG sections for the examination in November 2005 that prevented him from passing all parts within the requisite time frame.  With the transition to computer-based testing in April 2004, credit for previously passed sections of the examination were granted for new sections of the examination.  On November 10, 2005, Mr. Gingery attempted to register for a section of the examination for which he was previously granted credit.  Security within the re-registration software locked Mr. Gingeryís account file and prohibited his registration from being processed until the week of November 14.  Mr. Gingeryís Notice to Sit was generated by the testing system on November 16, 2005, however, testing for the fourth quarter of 2005 ended on November 30, 2005.  Security procedures mandate a minimum lead time of five business days before a candidate may schedule to sit for the examination.  In addition, the final two weeks of a testing window tend to be the busiest period with minimal seat availability.  Mr. Gingery contacted the State Board office on November 27, 2005 and informed board office staff of the administrative problems he encountered while attempting to register for the examination.

 

In February 2006, Mr. Gingery passed the FAR and REG sections of the examination, three months past the 36 months allowed by Regulations.  Mr. Gingery asks that his passing scores be accepted as the equivalent of passing scores earned within the 36 months allowed in Commissionerís Regulations.  Based on the unusual circumstances caused by the transition to computer-based testing and the technical difficulties that prevented his timely completion of the last two subtests, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem:  Mr. Kiarie applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2001. His education at Old Westbury satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

Commissionerís Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months and must pass each section in no more than six attempts.  Mr. Kiarie originally received conditional credit on the Accounting and Reporting (ARE) and Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) sections of the examination in November 2001.  He subsequently passed the Auditing (AUD) section of the examination in November 2003.

          Mr. Kiarie has provided documentation of personal difficulties that prevented him from sitting for the examination between November 2003 and November 2005.  Mr. Kiarie asks that his scores be accepted as the substantial equivalent of scores earned within the 36 months allowed in Commissionerís Regulations.  Based on Mr. Kiarieís personal difficulties, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem:   Mr. Schmutter sat for the Uniform CPA Examination in Maryland in 1992 and 1993 and was exempted from the Law subtest based on his licensure as an attorney at that time. Commissionerís Regulations require passing each of the four examination parts of the Uniform CPA examination. Mr. Schmutter passed the Accounting Practice subtest in November 1992, and, in May 1993, he passed the Accounting Theory and Auditing subtests.  After passing the three subtests, Mr. Schmutter was licensed in Maryland in 1994.  He is currently licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in Maryland with no disciplinary actions against him.

 

          Mr. Schmutter asks that his passing scores on three of the subtests of the Uniform CPA Examination and his exemption from the Law subtest be accepted to satisfy the examination requirement for licensure in New York State.  Based on his unique circumstances, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his petition.

(University at Albany, State University of New York, Albany, New York, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, May 1987)

 

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Mr. Stein applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2004.  His education at the University at Albany, State University of New York, satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within an 18-month period.  Mr. Stein originally received conditional credit on the Business Environment and Concepts section (BEC) in May 2004. He subsequently passed the Regulation (REG) section in October 2004 and the Auditing and Attestation (AUD) section in October 2005. Mr. Stein needed to pass the fourth section, Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR), by November 2005 to retain credit for the section passed in May 2004.   He did not pass the FAR section until February 2006.

 

          Mr. Steinís attempts to pass FAR were complicated by two factors that have generally been recognized as being problematic since implementation of the computer-based CPA exam in April 2004.  The first factor is late score release.  Mr. Stein took the FAR section of the computer based exam for the first time on August 30, 2005.  He did not receive his failing score for this section until October 2005.  He managed to schedule to take FAR in November 2005, but found that the 6 weeks between the date he received his failing score and the date he sat for the section again was not sufficient to prepare properly, given that he was simultaneously preparing for AUD.  He took and passed AUD on October 10, 2005, but failed to pass FAR on November 30, 2005.  The second factor that Mr. Stein grappled with was the technological format of the exam under CBT.  The CBT contains simulations that use spreadsheet and work-processing functions that operate very differently than those in commonly used software programs.  Candidates who are unfamiliar with computer-based testing find that they lose considerable time during the exam trying to master the unfamiliar functions.

 

In February 2006, Mr. Stein passed the FAR section of the examination, however, he exceeded the requirement that all four sections be passed with an 18-month period by 3.75 months.  Mr. Stein asks that his passing scores be accepted as the equivalent of passing scores earned within the 18-month period allowed in regulation.  Based on the unusual circumstances caused by the late reporting of scores and his difficulty adapting to the new exam format, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.

Alexander John Trotta

Scarsdale, New York 10583

 

(Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, May 1996)

 

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Mr. Trotta applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 1996.  His education at Case Western Reserve University satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months.  Mr. Trotta originally received conditional credit on the Auditing (AUD) and Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) sections of the examination in November 2002.  Mr. Trotta passed the Regulation (REG) section of the examination in August 2005.  In passing the Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR) section of the examination during February 2006, Mr. Trotta needed three additional months beyond the 36 month requirement provided in regulation to pass all sections of the Uniform CPA Examination.

 

          Mr. Trotta encountered several significant administrative difficulties upon the transition to computer-based testing in April 2004.  During May 2004, Mr. Trotta was granted an ADA accommodation allowing for extra unscheduled breaks during the administration of his examination; however, upon launch of the computer-based examination, the testing software did not provide for a ďbreakĒ button and the Test Center Administrator (TCA) was unaware of his ADA accommodation.  This confusion caused several interruptions of Mr. Trottaís exam administration while TCA resolved the discrepancy.  Mr. Trotta also experienced several software and hardware problems that were encountered following the initial launch of the computer-based test, including changing fonts within the simulation section of the examination, mouse problems and ďsystem time outĒ problems.  Because of the administrative problems encountered, Mr. Trotta was granted a free and immediate retest of the examination, subsequently passing the remaining parts of the exam.  On another administration, Mr. Trotta encountered additional difficulties within the simulation sections of the Regulation (REG) examination.  Acknowledging these errors, the test vendor allowed Mr. Trotta to retake the simulation sections of the examination.  Mr. Trotta passed the REG section based on this partial re-test.

 

          In February 2006, Mr. Trotta passed the FAR section of the examination, three months past the 36 months allowed by Commissionerís Regulations.  Mr. Trotta asks that his passing scores be accepted as the equivalent of passing scores earned within the 36 months allowed in regulation.  Based on the unusual circumstances and administrative issues caused by the transition to computer-based testing, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Mr. Turner applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2000.  His education at Pace University satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months and must pass each section in no more than six attempts.  Mr. Turner originally received conditional credit on the Auditing (AUD) and Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) sections of the examination in November 2001.  In addition, Mr. Turner passed the Accounting Regulation (ARE) section of the examination in May 2002.  In passing the Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR) section of the examination during February 2006, Mr. Turner needed 15 additional months beyond the 36 month requirement provided in the regulations to pass all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination.  Mr. Turner did pass the FAR section of the examination on his sixth attempt.

 

          In his letter requesting a waiver of the 36 month conditioning requirement, Mr. Turner outlines both administrative difficulties encountered with the transition to the computerized Uniform CPA Examination and personal difficulties that required him to incur interstate travel between January and December 2005.  A review of Uniform CPA Examination Gateway system indicates that a test center problem report was filed due to software problems encountered by Mr. Turner during his May 2004 exam administration.

 

          In February 2006, Mr. Turner passed the FAR section of the examination, 15 months past the 36 months allowed by Commissionerís Regulations.  Mr. Turner asks that his passing scores be accepted as the equivalent of passing scores earned within the 36 months allowed in regulation.  Based on the unusual circumstances caused by the transition to computer-based testing and Mr. Turnerís personal difficulties, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Ms. Wang earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana in 2003. Her studies satisfied all the educational requirements for CPA licensure except for courses in U.S. business law.

 

Ms. Wang applied for admission to the November 2003 Uniform CPA Examination.  Commissionerís Regulations at that time allowed an applicant to be admitted to the Uniform CPA Examination if the applicant were enrolled in a course that would satisfy the remaining educational requirement and the applicant could complete the course within 60 days of the administration of the examination.  Ms. Wang enrolled in a U.S. business law course through Louisiana State University and, based on that enrollment, was conditionally admitted to the November 2003 Uniform CPA examination.

 

          Ms. Wang completed the course in U.S. business law 15 days after the 60-day deadline.  At the time Ms. Wang requested conditional admission to the CPA Examination, she felt she could complete the course within the required time frame.  However, Louisiana State Universityís closure for a winter vacation delayed her completion of the law course.

 

          Ms. Wang asks that her passing scores on the Uniform CPA Examination be accepted as the substantial equivalent of scores earned under Commissionerís Regulations.  Based on Ms. Wangís individual situation, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports her request.

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANCY

06-11-07

Michael Brescio

Cedarhurst, New York 11516

 

(Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, Bachelor of Science, May 2000)

 

Petition for: Acceptance of passing grades on the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

 

Statement of Problem: Mr. Brescio applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2000.  His education at Boston College satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months and must pass each section in no more than six attempts.  Mr. Brescio originally received conditional credit on the Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) and the Financial Accounting and Reporting (FAR) sections of the examination in November 2002.  Mr. Brescio passed the Auditing (AUD) section of the examination in May 2003.  In passing the Regulation (REG) section of the examination during February 2006, Mr. Brescio exceeded the 36-month requirement by three months. 

 

          After receiving conditional credit for passing two sections of the examination in November 2002, Mr. Brescio was placed on international assignment by his employer for nine months.  The Uniform CPA Examination is not administered in any foreign jurisdiction and requiring Mr. Brescio to travel back to the United States during the time of his international assignment would represent an unnecessary burden.  Mr. Brescio informs the State Board that he has already met the experience requirement for licensure and has provided documentation to support his assertion.  The State board will evaluate this experience once his employer certifies it.  Completion of the Uniform CPA Examination is potentially the last requirement for licensure. 

 

          Mr. Brescio asks that his passing scores be accepted as the equivalent of passing scores earned within the 36 months allowed in regulation.  Based on the unusual circumstances caused by Mr. Brescioís international assignment, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.

         

APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:

QUALIFICATIONS:

Section 7404 of Education Law and Part 70 of the Commissionerís Regulations require:

 

(1) A bachelorís or higher degree based on a program in accountancy.

(1)            Boston College, Bachelor of Science, May 2000.

(2) Passing scores on the Uniform CPA Examination.

(2) (a) May 2000: Law (failure); Financial            Accounting and Reporting, 83                  (passing score).  

     (b) November 2000: Law (failure);                 Financial Accounting and                          Reporting, 78 (passing score).

     (c) November 2002: Law, 85;                        Financial Accounting and                          Reporting, 80 (passing scores with           retention of credit for both).

REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL NURSING

06-01-22      

Danhong Lin

New Milford, CT 06776

 

(Fujian Health School, Fujian, Peopleís Republic of China, Midwife, 1989)

 

Petition for:  Acceptance of education.

 

Statement of Problem:  Ms. Lin completed a three-year nurse midwife program at the Fujian Health School, Fujian, Peopleís Republic of China, in July 1989.  Ms. Lin asks that her education be accepted as satisfying the professional educational requirements for licensure as a registered professional nurse.

 

          Section 6905 of New York State Education Law requires that applicants for licensure as registered professional nurses must have received a diploma or degree in general nursing.  Since her diploma indicated midwifery, Ms. Lin does not automatically satisfy the regulatory requirement. The applicantís school of midwifery has sent the Department copies of its nursing and midwifery curriculum, listing courses and hours for both its general nursing program and its midwifery program.  Department staff have reviewed the specific courses for both programs and have determined that the general nursing study in both programs is substantially the same. The nursing program has more hours in fundamentals of nursing, while the midwifery program has more hours in pediatrics, gynecology and obstetrics, and surgery. Her program led to licensure as a general nurse in the Peopleís Republic of China.  Department staff recommend that her nursing education be considered equivalent to the general nursing education required in Commissioner's Regulations.

 

         

APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:

QUALIFICATIONS:

Section 6905 of New York State Education Law and Section 64.1 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education require:

 

  (1)  Graduation from a general nursing program of at least two academic years in a country outside the United States that is satisfactory to the Department and recognized by the licensing authorities of that country as being preparation for practice as a registered professional nurse.

(1)  Completed a three-year nurse midwife program leading to diploma of midwifery at Fujian Health School, Fujian, Peopleís Republic of China, July 1989.

 

  (2) Satisfactory scores on the National Council Licensure Examination.

(2) 


 

(3) Evidence of the required course in identification and reporting of child abuse and maltreatment.

(3)

 

RECOMMENDATION:   The Committee on the Professions, in concurrence with the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Nursing, recommends that the applicantís petition for acceptance of her nursing education be approved.

Allen G. Rich

Holmdel, NJ 07733

 

(University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, V.M.D., 1976)
