    (a)    Subject to the limitations in this section, on the affirmative vote of at least a majority of the authorized membership of the State Board, the State Board may waive the examination requirements of this subtitle for an individual who is licensed to provide electrical services as a master electrician in another state.

    (b)    The State Board may grant a waiver under this section only if the applicant:

        (1)    pays the appropriate application fee set by the Board under § 6-205(2) of this title; and

        (2)    provides adequate evidence that the applicant:

            (i)    meets the qualifications otherwise required by this subtitle;

            (ii)    holds an active license in good standing in the other state;

            (iii)    holds a license that is equivalent to the State license; and

            (iv)    meets a 7-year experience requirement in providing electrical services, at least 4 years of which must have been gained prior to licensure in the other state, while under the supervision of a master electrician or similarly qualified employee of a governmental unit.

    (c)    The State Board may grant a waiver only if the state in which the applicant is licensed waives the examination of licensees of this State to a similar extent as this State waives the examination requirements for individuals licensed in that state.

    (d)    The Board may allow an applicant up to 3 years credit toward the experience required under subsection (b)(2) of this section, if the State Board determines that the applicant has completed a formal course of study or professional training in electrical installation comparable to the required experience.
