The table provides information to identify whether this program meets the specific state, province, or territory educational requirements for the states and provinces listed below. In the column titled “Does This Program Meet State Educational Requirements?” the disclosure for that state is provided as “Meets State Educational Requirements”, “Does Not Meet State Educational Requirements”, or “No Determination Has Been Made”. This disclosure is unique to the specific state for each row on the table.

It’s important to note that even if the program meets the educational requirements, licensure may also require acceptance to a registry, background checks, or meeting physical standard requirements. Students are advised to check with the agency to identify an exact set of requirements that extend above the educational requirements.

BLET licensure requirements vary by state and other individual factors, credentials, training, job experience, criminal history, or military service. Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. There are no state program requirements standardized across all 50 states for the BLET program.
