On-Line Renewal

On-line renewal has been on the wish list for many licensees, so the Board is happy to announce that the 2017 on-line license renewal will be up and running beginning October 1, 2016. There will be an abundance of communications coming out of the Board office with instructions and reminders, so please remember to keep the Board's Administration updated with your latest email address.  Any email changes should be submitted to the Board office at

Some of the features that on-line renewal will provide are:
  • The ability to record Board approved events and courses that you have attended in order to keep track of your credits.
  • Submit continuing education requests for Board review.
  • The ability to download proof of attendance forms in advance in preparation for the possibility of a continuing education audit, or at the time of a continuing education audit.
  • Pay on-line for your renewal by credit (MasterCard and Visa Only), or renew on-line and submit a check by mail.
  • Update your own contact information
Keep an eye out for more updates!!
