*Be advised Microsoft Explorer and Edge are not compatible. Use Firefox, or Google Chrome. The renewal system IS NOT Mobile Friendly, so is not able to be done on a mobile device. MAC Users are highly encouraged to use Google Chrome, as Safari may not be completely compatible with some tasks.
As a licensee or new applicant you will need to create an individualized portal to submit any documents to the board. The new system will also allow you to view details on your license, you have never been able to before. This is a new system for all of us, so we are here to assist you, however please have patience as there may be things we will learn together.
Please be aware that you will need to enter your email
address to start the process. If the system does not recognize your email, you
will need to use your alternate email which also received this notice. If the
system does not recognize either of your emails, call Kim or Wende at 503
378-5735 or email at Oregon.firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are expecting a high call volume, so please make sure you try both
emails before calling. You will later have the opportunity to
change to your preferred email.
This is the link to begin this process will take you to the main splash page of the licensing system. https://blsw.us.thentiacloud.net/webs/blsw/ . Along with our website address, please save this link for future reference. You will need it again and again.
Your step by step instruction on How To Create Your Licensee Portal. Feel free to use this as your guide.
Problems Logging On?
You must be using a compatible browser, such as Google Chrome or Firefox. The system is not compatible with mobile devices, Microsoft explorer, or edge. Safari is not suggested but sometimes will work. It is not consistent.
You can only sign on using the last(current) email address we have on file for you.
If you do not receive the email with the temporary password, you are either on an incompatible browser system, or the information you submitted does not match ours. For security reasons, you will not receive a temporary password if your information does not match. At this point, you will need to call or email us to update information.
if you are looking to access your application, make sure you are on the applicant portal NOT the licensee portal. You are not a licensee until after the application is approved and you have been issued a license number.
If you still can't log in.
The new portal system is through the applications instructions page of the website.
All renewals are now to be completed through the new licensing system. If you have not already, follow the steps above to create your new portal. All licenses except CSWA must load all continuing education activities, before you can complete the renewal. If this is your first renewal with a new license type, you will not need to submit any continuing education. Refer to your initial letter, or the continuing education page for details.
Renewal notices will be sent out by email to the primary email we have on file the first week of the month prior to your renewal. Subsequent reminders will also go out during the month of your renewal. Renewing your professional license is your responsibility, and if you do not receive or see the email sent, it is not a valid reason for not renewing and late fees can not be waived. Please remember your renewal date is also the month of your birthday, every 2 years for all licensed except CSWA's which renew annually.
The new system will allow CSWA's and supervisors access to current CSWA plans and hours.
A new version of the evaluation form has been added to the Forms tab, and the Clinical Associate Information page. Upload the new form along with the hours you enter in the system under 6 month evaluations.
