I have not received notification regarding renewal of my license. How can I renew?
Online license renewal is fast and safe! https://IBPLicense.iowa.gov/ Click here to renew online up to 60 days before your current license expires and follow the directions.
You will be asked to verify that you have met the continuing education requirements. You may renew your license for 30 days after your current license expires but will be required to pay a late fee.
Paper applications will NOT be mailed. Instead you will receive a postcard as a reminder it is time to renew the license. If you do not renew online you may download a paper renewal from the "Renewal" page on this website.
Can I use the extra continuing education hours that I earned from my previous renewal for the present renewal?
The only time this is allowed is for your second renewal.
For those newly licensed, continuing education is not required for the first license renewal. Any continuing education hours obtained anytime from the initial licensing date may be used for the second license renewal. After the second renewal, licensees are required to complete the full number of required continuing education hours within each compliance period. For more information see "Continuing Education" page on this website.
