Individual Renewal

Pocket card mailing

All pocket cards for the 2018-2019 individual license renewal will be mailed by January 31, 2018. Because these are printed as a mass printing, the Board must wait until the majority of regular and late renewals have been received and processed. In the meantime, you may verify a renewed license via the License Lookup function on the Board's website. All expiration dates are updated and any license listed as "Active in Renewal - Paid" is a renewed, active license. All status will change to the regular "Active" status once the pocket cards are mailed.

Renewal notices will be mailed the week of November 6, 2017 for the 2018-2019 individual renewal period. The online renewal is open now, if you have your user id and password from your last renewal you may use that to complete your online renewal any time between now and December 31, 2017. If you DO NOT have you user id and password from your previous renewals, you will receive your user id and password on your renewal notice.   


If you did not renew for 2016-2017 and your license is currently "Inactive" you will need to contact the Board for information regarding the reinstatement of your professional license. More information regarding reinstatement can be found on the Reinstatement page.


Registrants are reminded that Board policy allows up to a maximum of three (3) hours continuing professional development per year for the completion of correspondence courses (paper, online, or other formats) provided the course and course provider meet the requirements of R.C. 4733.151.

Important- Do not confuse correspondence courses and online courses. Correspondence courses are courses that involve reading articles or other text and can be received by mail or online. Correspondence courses are typically self-paced and participation is not monitored by the provider. These types of courses are acceptable up to three hours per year.
