Description of Program and Relief

Extension of Certain Professional Licenses and Six-Month Deferral of Continuing Education Requirements

Pursuant to Executive Order 2020-17, certain state agencies and boards will defer requirements to renew licenses that have an expiration date between March 1, 2020 and September 1, 2020 by six months from the expiration date, unless those requirements can be completed online. The agencies/boards will also defer requirements to complete continuing education by six months, unless those requirements can be completed online, and will suspend any rules that limit the amount of online learnings hours permitted to issue or renew a license.

If an examination cannot be provided electronically, the state agency or board shall issue a provisional license to an applicant who has met all other requirements, but who is unable to take the required examination due to the closure of private testing centers and unavailability of remote testing options.
