Florida venomous reptile law cath-22

"Florida 68A-6.007 Possession, Transportation, Exhibition and Caging Venomous Reptiles and Reptiles of Concern.
1. Applicants shall demonstrate no less than one (1) year of substantial practical experience (to consist of no less than 1,000 hours) in the care, feeding, handling and husbandry of the species or other species within the same biological family which are similar in characteristics and care to the species for which the permit is sought."

You need a license to possess venomous reptiles.

You need 1,000 hours of "practical experience in ... handling" venomous reptiles to have a license.

Then, how one accumulates 1,000 hours without a license?

Anyone please can point to the actual law governing this exact issue in Florida? (ie, working with an already-licensed person {to be added to his/her license ???] or need a "student" permit or go to South Carolina to make 1,000 hours or what...? does it come down the definition of "possession" = ownership vs. actual "handling" the animal vs. something else?)
