Shop License(s): You may begin the renewal process on May 2 of even numbered years.
School License(s): You may begin the renewal process on May 2 annually.
Renewal notifications will be emailed to your email address on file with the board at 60, 50, 40 and 30 days prior to the license expiration date. Renew your license early to avoid a late fee or lapse in licensure. All continuing education requirements must be completed prior to license renewal.
