An applicant who does not meet the college education requirement may substitute, on a year-for-year basis, experience in a position as purchasing agent or director of purchasing for any county of this State or as the primary administrator of a centralized purchasing system maintained by any such county.
Each applicant substituting experience in one or more of said positions must have been employed in said position or positions on a full-time basis for a period in the aggregate of not less than 4 years. Proof of this service shall be verified by resolution of the board of chosen freeholders of the county or with respect to counties operating under the "Optional County Charter Law" (P.L.1972, c. 154, C. 40:41A-1 et seq.) by certification by the officer charged with exercising the executive power of the county.
