For prior CPE/renewal years or when renewing/reporting late: Use the renewal form for that year (for example, to report CPE for July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017, use the 2018 Renewal Form). Neither late earned (carryback hours) nor late reported CPE can be reported through Online Services. You will owe CPE fees and a late renewal fee and must mail the appropriate documentation and form to the Board. Consult the renewal form and also the CPE Fee Chart to calculate.
NOTE: The above form is used only during renewal. If you want to change from Inactive or Exempt to Active status mid year (not as of January 1), use Status Change to Active Request Form.
(Note: If inactive seeking active status, do not use this form during renewal window; instead use current year's renewal form to request status change.)
