Renewal application documents must be received by the Department within 180 days prior to the expiration date of the certification or licensure to allow for processing of the forms and background check.
Fees, paperwork, and training that is required may depend on what type of certification/licensure you hold and are attempting to renew. Factors such as if you are renewing after expiration or how many certifications or licenses you hold can affect the answer. The information below is based on someone who is sending in renewal application packet for one certification/license, at least one month before expiration.
If a renewal applicant is currently employed and submits a renewal application packet less than 30 days prior to the expiration of certification or licensure, the submission of a Form PS-20 is required to continue providing private security services while the application packet is being processed.
A late submission penalty will be assessed if reapplying after the expiration date of the certification or licensure.
Applicants renewing their certification or licensure more than four years after the expiration date of the certification or licensure must submit a new application packet.
An application packet for renewing certification or licensure as a private security provider must be completed in its entirety and must include:
1. A completed Form PS-21 (Application for Renewal of Private Security Certification/Licensure);
2. A completed Form PS-27 affirming moral fitness and professional standards;
3. The original Form PS-6 completed as prescribed by OAR 259-060-0060, documenting completion of the training required;
4. Applicant for renewal of instructor certification must submit a Form PS-8 (Continuing Education Form); and
