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 Commissioner’s
Regulations require for endorsement that “… 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 …”

       Each petitioner satisfied the examination requirement in his/her initial state of
licensure and has extensive professional practice satisfactory to the State Board. 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 applicant’s licensure in another state be accepted for endorsement in New York
State.

James L. Mannello
Brooklyn, New York

Petition for: Waiver of the Business Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR) Section of
the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination.

Statement of Problem: Mr. Mannello is an applicant for licensure by endorsement of a
CPA license issued by the State of Connecticut in January 1996. He is also an attorney
in the State of Connecticut. At the time that his CPA license was issued, Connecticut
did not require attorneys to sit for the Business Law and Professional Responsibility
(LPR) Section of the Uniform CPA exam. He did pass the other three sections of the
exam in Connecticut within the time frame allowed by New York.

       Mr. Mannello is petitioning to waive the requirement that an applicant sit for and
pass the LPR section of the Uniform CPA Exam. Mr. Mannello’s passing of three
sections of the CPA examination and the Connecticut Bar Exam was deemed by the
State of Connecticut to be substantially equivalent to passing all four sections of the
CPA examination when they issued his CPA license in 1996. Based on the above and
the fact that Mr. Mannello has continued as a CPA in good standing in Connecticut
since that time, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy
supports his petition.

 APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:                    QUALIFICATIONS:
 Section 7404 of Education Law and Part
 70 of the Commissioner’s Regulations:
 (1) 15 years of experience acceptable to    Applicant has twenty years of acceptable

 (2) Passing scores on the Uniform CPA       November 1982: Accounting and

                                             and Professional Responsibility (exempt).

RECOMMENDATION: The Committee on the Professions, in concurrence with the
Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy, recommends that the
applicant’s petition to waive the Business Law and Professional Responsibility (LPR)
Section of the Uniform Certified Public Accountancy Examination be accepted.

Svetlana Khenina
Brooklyn, New York

(Pace University, New York, New York, Bachelor of Business Administration and Master
of Business Administration in Accounting, June 2001)

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

Statement of Problem: Svetlana Khenina, an applicant for licensure as a CPA, recently
passed the four parts of the Uniform CPA Examination. Commissioner’s Regulations
required her to pass all fourt parts of the examination within 36 months. Due to a series
of medical issues, however, she exceeded the 36-month conditioning requirement by 19
months.

      Ms. Khenina received conditional credit for passing the paper-based ARE and
LPR sections of the examination in November 2002. She needed to pass the remaining
two sections of the examination by November 30, 2005 to retain credit for the ARE and
LPR sections. She passed the paper-based AUD section in November, 2003, well within
the conditioning time period and the computer-based FAR section in June 2007, 19
months outside of conditioning.

        Beginning in April 2002, however, and continuing through April 2007, Ms.
Khenina, a primary care giver for her family, was faced with a series of family medical
issues that made it difficult for her to adequately prepare and sit for the remaining
sections of the CPA exam. During this period, Ms. Khenina did make a good faith effort
at finishing the exam, attempting and failing the FAR section four times before passing it
in June 2007.

       Based on the strength of the documentation provided by several physicians who
attended her family, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy
supports Ms. Khenina’s request to waive the 36-month requirement to pass all four
parts of the Uniform CPA Examination.

 APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:                    QUALIFICATIONS:
 Section 7404 of Education Law and Part
 70 of the Commissioner’s Regulations
 require:
 (1) A bachelor’s or higher degree based     (1) Master of Business Administration in

Mark D. Orlic
West Hempstead, NY


(Binghamton University, Vestal, New York, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, August
2003)

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

Statement of Problem: Commissioner's Regulations require that an applicant must pass all
parts of the Uniform CPA examination within 36 months. Mr. Orlic originally received
conditional credit for passing the Regulation (REG) and Law and Professional
Responsibility (LPR) sections of the examination in May 2003. He subsequently passed
the Financial Accounting & Reporting (FAR) section in May 2006. Mr. Orlic needed to
pass the Auditing and Attestation (AUD) by May 2006 to retain credit for the REG and LPR
sections passed in May 2003.

       Mr. Orlic attempted to pass AUD in May 2006; however, he scored a 70, five points
below a passing grade. He sat for AUD again and passed it in May 2007, 12 months
outside of the conditioning period. Mr. Orlic’s attempts to pass all parts of the Uniform
CPA Examination within the 36-month time period were complicated by examination
administration and employment issues. In his letter requesting a waiver, Mr. Orlic explains
and documents that he had extenuating technological difficulties with the examination that
resulted in his being granted a free re-test in December 2006; however, prior commitments
required that he be out of the country until mid-April 2007.

      The Executive Secretary for the State Board for Accountancy supports Mr. Orlic’s
request to waive the 36-month requirement to pass all four parts of the Uniform CPA
Examination.

 APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:                     QUALIFICATIONS:

       Beginning in February 2006, however, and continuing through the present, Mr.
Lorman was faced with a series of family medical issues that made it difficult for him to
adequately prepare and sit for the remaining section of the CPA exam. Despite these
issues, Mr. Lorman made a good faith effort to pass the exam, sitting for the FAR
section a number of times before passing it in May 2007.

       Based on the strength of the documentation provided by several physicians who
attended his family, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy
supports Mr. Lorman’s request to waive the 36-month requirement to pass all four parts
of the Uniform CPA Examination.

Rory A. Rose
Dix Hills, New York

(University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, May
2005.)

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

Statement of Problem: During the last three quarters of 2006 the uniform CPA exam
was subject to an undetected scoring anomaly that resulted in approximately 200 New
York State applicants being given an incorrect grade that was lower than it should have
been. A small number of these 200 applicants were told that they had failed a section
that they had actually passed, sat for that section again, and failed it during that
subsequent sitting. Section 59.5(f) of the Regulations of the Commissioner state that,
“A candidate who is reexamined in a part already passed shall not retain credit for such
part from earlier examinations.” The Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public
Accountancy recommends that CPA applicants who were told they had failed a section
that they actually passed should be allowed to retain credit for the passed section, even
if they subsequently failed that section upon reexamination, based on the fact that they
would not have scheduled the reexamination and received a subsequent failing grade
had their earlier performance on the section been correctly scored and reported by the
examination administrator.

       Mr. Rose is one of the applicants affected by this scoring anomaly. He passed the
computer-based FAR section of the exam in January 2006 and had until September 30,
2007 to pass the remaining three sections of the examination. He passed the computer-
based BEC section in October 2006 and the computer-based REG section in February
2007, both within the conditioning period. He sat for and passed the computer-based AUD
section in May 2006, also within the conditioning period, but was told that he had failed
that section. He then sat for and failed the AUD section in August 2006.

      Based on the administrative error in grading and reporting Mr. Rose’s May 2006
AUD score, the Executive Secretary of the State Board for Public Accountancy supports
his petition that he be allowed to retain credit for that particular section, despite his
subsequent attempts.

PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING
07-03-16
Thomas N. Rastani Jr.
Utica, New York 13502

(State University of New York Institute of Technology, Utica/Rome, New York, Bachelor
of Science in Civil Engineering Technology, May 2000)

Petition for: The applicant is appealing the determination of the State Board for
Engineering and Land Surveying that he needs additional acceptable experience before
admission to the professional engineering licensing examination.

Statement of Problem: Mr. Rastani is applying to sit for the professional engineering
licensing examination. Application to the examination requires 12 years of acceptable
education/experience credit. Based on his engineering technology education at SUNY
Utica/Rome, he was awarded six years of acceptable education/experience in compliance
with Commissioner’s Regulations. Therefore, he needs to demonstrate six years of
experience satisfactory to the State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying.
Commissioner’s Regulations stipulate completion of practical experience in professional
engineering satisfactory to the State Board shall be verified in a manner acceptable to the
State Board. The State Board has established forms and procedures for an applicant’s
submission of his/her professional experience and for the review of the documentation
submitted by the State Board. Mr. Rastani’s documentation of experience has been
independently reviewed on two separate occasions – originally in June 2006 and again in
June 2007 after he submitted additional documentation. These reviews were conducted by
two separate members of the State Board, both licensed professional engineers. Their
conclusion is that the applicant has not submitted sufficient documentation of having
completed six years of acceptable engineering experience. The second reviewer granted
him an additional six months of experience. Nonetheless, he still needs to submit
documentation of one year and six months of additional years of acceptable experience
before he can sit for the licensing examination.

       In his petition, Mr. Rastani questioned whether all of his experience was reviewed
and whether there might have been some confusion because of overlapping time periods
for two endorsers. In addition, Mr. Rastani questioned the State Board’s determination that
he did not document sufficient experience to “demonstrate the intensive application of
engineering principles in the practical solution of engineering problems.” He indicated that
he has extensive experience in highway design and that in Region 2 he is one of few lead
designers. His Regional Design Engineer submitted a letter opining about the apparent
diminution of the experience with which he had been credited. In his petition, Mr. Rastani
also raised the concerns that other engineers with whom he worked received more
experience credit that he received. The Executive Secretary of the State Board for
Engineering and Land Surveying reports that the State Board can only review and make
determinations on the documentation as presented by each applicant. Even in the same
job title, different engineers may have different experience. Each applicant must write-up
their experiences clearly to demonstrate how he/she has satisfied the experience
requirement.

       At this time, two Professional Engineer Board members agree that Mr. Rastani’s
experience as submitted does not meet all of New York State’s requirements for licensure;
thus, he does not qualify to sit for the licensure examination. Mr. Rastani’s experience was
evaluated according to established procedures. He was given the opportunity to submit
additional documentation and this documentation was considered by the State Board
members. Department staff find the determinations of the New York State Board for
Engineering and Land Surveying to be appropriate and do not find merit in the appeal. The
Committee on the Professions finds no basis to override the determination of the State
Board.

 APPLICABLE REQUIREMENTS:                      QUALIFICATIONS:
 Part 68 of the Regulations of the
 Commissioner of Education requires:

 Prior to licensure the applicant must         See Statement of Problem.
 accrue 12 years of acceptable
 education/experience credit. One year of
 education/experience credit may be
 earned for each year of work experience
 acceptable to the State Board for
 Engineering and Land Surveying
 pursuant to section 68.2 of this Part. Two
 years of education/experience credit may
 be earned for each year of professional
 engineering education obtained in a
 program leading to a bachelor's degree in
 engineering and accredited by an
 acceptable accrediting agency which
 specializes in the fields of engineering or
 in a program equivalent to such an
 accredited professional engineering
 program.
 Practical experience in professional
 engineering work satisfactory to the
 board shall be verified in a manner
 acceptable to the board and shall:

    a. demonstrate the intensive
       application of engineering
       principles in the practical solution
       of engineering problems;
   b. demonstrate a knowledge of
      engineering mathematics, physical
      and applied sciences, properties of
      materials, and the fundamental
      principles of engineering design;
   c. be broad in scope;
   d. be of such nature as to develop
      and mature the applicant's
      engineering knowledge and
      judgment; and
include at least two years of experience
acquired while working on projects
requiring a knowledge and use of codes
and practices utilized in the United
States.

RECOMMENDATION: The Committee on the Professions, in concurrence with the
Executive Secretary of the State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying,
recommends that the applicant’s petition be denied.

THREE YEAR LIMITED LICENSE IN DENTISTRY

Petition for: Three-year limited license to practice Dentistry under Section 6604(6) of the
Education Law.

Statement of Problem: The applicant listed below has satisfied the education and
examination requirements for licensure as a dentist in New York State. The only
requirement for full licensure that cannot be satisfied at this time is United States
citizenship or immigration status as an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence
in the United States.

      The applicant has an opportunity to practice dentistry in an area which has been
designated a Federal Dental Health Professions Shortage Area and requests a three-
year waiver of the citizenship requirement under Section 6604(6) of the Education Law.
Each applicant must sign an affidavit stating the exact location of the shortage area
where he will practice before the three-year limited license will be issued.

Applicable Guidelines: Section 6604(6) of Education Law relates to the requirement of
United States citizenship or permanent resident status for licensure as a dentist in New
York State and allows the Board of Regents to grant a one-time, three-year waiver of
this requirement for an alien dentist to practice in New York State if all other licensure
requirements are satisfied and to grant an additional extension not to exceed six years
to enable the alien to secure citizenship or permanent resident status, provided such
status is being actively pursued.
