(d) The board may waive the examination or education requirements and grant licensure to any applicant: (1) Who presents proof of current licensure as a radiologic technologist in another state, the District of Columbia or territory of the United States which requires standards for licensure determined by the board to be equivalent to the requirements under this act; and (2) who has, at the time of application, a current valid certificate by the American registry of radiologic technologists, nuclear medicine technology certification board or other recognized national voluntary credentialing bodies, which the board finds was issued on the basis of an examination which meets standards at least as stringent as those established by the board.

(e) A person whose license has been revoked may make written application to the board requesting reinstatement of the license in a manner prescribed by the board, which application shall be accompanied by the fee provided for in K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 65-7308, and amendments thereto.
