Initial Applications for MN Licenses

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Reporting

For  the current CPE/renewal year (when renewing/reporting on time): Use Online Services or (when renewals open each fall) the current year's paper renewal form.

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.

 

CPE Reporting Form for Status Change to Active

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.
