  • Submit one form of acceptable photographic identification, which must include applicant's current legal name, such as driver's license, state ID card, passport or military ID card. (Clear, front and back photocopies are acceptable if submitting by mail.)
  • If age is not included on photo ID submitted above, applicant must submit proof of being at least 18 years old and provide a copy of birth certificate or school/military/governmental record with age documented.

  • Note that if you are qualifying through CBMT or NMTR that you must arrange for the organization to submit your documentation directly to the Health Licensing Office; it cannot come from an individual.
