License Renewals open around November 2021. Licensees cannot renew prior but can upload their professional development in their profile in the Licensee Portal.
NEW PD requirements for license renewal:
SLP/Audiologist: 20 hours with 1 hour in cultural competency.
SLPA: 10 hours with 1 hour in cultural competency.
The PD period is 1/1/2020 - 12/31/21.
Professional development hours must conform to Board rules regarding what topics, providers, and types of activities are pre-approved or require special approval. An activity must meet all three pre-approval criteria (activity, topic, and sponsor) or it must be specially approved. Hours that do not meet these rules will not be counted.
Professional Development Triple Test
If an activity is an acceptable type of activity, on an acceptable topic, sponsored by an approved sponsor, then anyone can count that activity towards license renewal. If one of the criteria is not met, or if there is any doubt, submit an application for special Board approval. Applications must be submitted within 30 days of the event.
Activities that the board approves will be listed in the PD list in the Licensee Portal.
