License Change from Inactive to Active
What you should know
You may convert a license from inactive status to active status either at the time of renewal or any time within your two-year licensure period. If converting at the time of license renewal, you must complete the license renewal application, including completion of the CE Reporting Worksheet, and submit the appropriate license renewal fee. If converting your license to an active status before the next expiration date, you must complete a Status Conversion Form documenting completion of the required CE hours. You can find the Status Conversion Form here.
If converting at the time of renewal, a total of 80 hours of CE must be completed within the 24-month period immediately preceding the license expiration. A minimum of 20 hours of CE must be completed in the one-year period immediately preceding the license expiration, including 12 hours in technical subject matter. You can find what subjects apply here.
If converting any time prior to your expiration date, you are to apply as if you were a new applicant. A total of 80 hours of CE must be completed within the 24-month period prior to requesting license status conversion. More information can be found here or in the CBA License Renewal Handbook.
