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.

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANCY

06-14-07

Robert Sumner Nielsen

Hamilton, Bermuda

 

(Excelsior College, Albany, New York, Bachelor of Science, February 2003)

 

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

 

Statement of Problem: Mr. Nielsen applied for licensure and admission to the Uniform CPA Examination in 2003.  His education at Excelsior College satisfied all the educational requirements for licensure.

 

          To earn credit toward satisfying the licensing examination requirement Commissioner's Regulations specify that an applicant must first pass two subtests of the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination at one examination administration and must pass all four subtests within any three-year period.  Mr. Nielsen sat for two sections of the examination in November 2003.  The Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) section of the examination was given on Thursday, November 6, 2003 and the Financial Accounting & Reporting (FAR) section on Friday, November 7, 2003.  During the administration of the LPR section of the examination, Mr. Nielsen experienced a problem with his eye that grew progressively worse during the course of the examination.  Panicking, Mr. Nielsen submitted the examination prior to the end of the administration and proceeded to a hospital where he was diagnosed with a torn retina.  Mr. Nielsen scored a 72 on this examination, while the passing score is 75.  Mr. Nielsen, with the consent of a physician, subsequently sat for and passed the FAR section of the examination the next day.  Mr. Nielsen subsequently passed the remaining three sections of the examination between February 2005 and May 2006.      

 

          Mr. Nielsen documented that the progressive severity of his unknown medical condition caused him to panic and terminate his examination in order to go to a local hospital.  Mr. Nielsen has submitted a doctorís note indicating that he did indeed suffer from a torn retina.  Mr. Nielsen asks that his passing scores on the Uniform CPA Examination be accepted as the substantial equivalent of scores earned under Commissionerís Regulations.  Given the unusual circumstances caused by his medical condition, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports his request.
