(1)     is in New Mexico temporarily to teach or assist a New Mexico resident licensed to practice genetic counseling; or 

(2)     met the requirements for licensure in that state, which were equal to or greater than the requirements for licensure in New Mexico at the time the license was obtained in the other state. 

C.     The board shall not issue a temporary license to a person who qualifies for the temporary license under Subsection A of this section more than two consecutive times within the five-year period immediately following the issuance of the first temporary license.
