Welcome to the Online Services Division of our Website

From this portal, you have access to multiple types of transactions with several types of credentials.  All of these activities occur on a secure server.  This secure server encrypts all information, using Secure Sockets Layer - SSL technology.  This includes your user name, password, billing information, credit card number, expiration date and all renewal information. In order to use this secure zone of our website, your computer must have web browser software capable of 128 bit encryption. The newest versions of Google's Chrome, Microsoft's Edge, or Mozilla's Firefox have that level of encryption.

        Notice to users of Internet Explorer 

It has come to our attention that individuals using newer versions of Internet Explorer are experiencing compatibility issues while attempting an online renewal.  Specifically, you may notice that the program will not allow you to advance beyond the first renewal section.  We have prepared a guidance document with instructions on how to force the renewal website into a compatible mode to by-pass the issue.  If these steps do not eliminate the problem, please use a different web browser to renew.

Instructions to enable Compatibility View in Internet Explorer
Download Google Chrome
Download Mozilla Firefox 


Reinstatement of Credentials

If your credential has been expired for more than 30 days, it is too late to renew it.  However, you can apply for the reinstatement of your credential.  To do so, please send a written request to the Board office, requesting the information necessary to reinstate your credential.  Please be sure to include your name, credential number, and current mailing address in your written request.  The licensing staff will prepare a reinstatement packet for you, containing forms and instructions on the procedures necessary to reinstate your credential and then mail it to the address noted in your request.
