So my license expired last June, and I submitted my paperwork this last Feb. They just got to evaluating it this June 15. So when they look at your sea time for all your requirements going back the last five years, what 5 year time frame do they use. The 5 years from you license expiration date, five years from the day you submit your application, or five years from when they finally get it evaluated.
You need to give more specifics on what 5-year requirement you are asking about. It’s going to depend on what you’re asking about. Generally, if your application is complete and doesn’t have serious deficiencies, it will likely be the date the application was received at the REC. But, it will depend on what if anything is missing from the application, and what specific 5-year requirement is to be applied.
