As a layperson interested in Licensing:
There are three levels of licensing: Pastoral Development or Specialized Ministry; General; and Ordination. You would start with a Pastoral Development or Specialized Ministry License. You must be supporting a local church and be active in local ministry. You will need a recommendation letter from a sponsoring pastor.

The above steps apply here as well.
