There is a way to avoid penalty fees and disciplinary action if you follow these instructions carefully.
First, you MUST get the licensing fee to the Board prior to (or postmarked prior to) December 31. In this way, you avoid late penalty fees. However, you are STILL NOT AUTHORIZED TO PRACTICE YET.You must complete the form with the affirmation that you have completed your CE requirements. If this is NOT the case, then do NOT fill this form out yet. Take whatever measures are necessary to complete your CE, then you can fill the form out accurately and submit it to the Board, and return to practice once your renewal is verified. (You can verify your renewal by going online to the Boards website and verifying your credentials. BE ADVISED THAT IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED YOUR CE, BUT COMPLETE THE APPLICATION STATING THAT YOU HAVE DONE SO, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO SEVERE PENALTIES!
