 1) Effective May 6, 2014 - Important Continuing Education Requirement Change

As part of the National Uniformity movement, the following CE requirements will change:

 

1. For persons licensed less than 20 years  - the hours have been reduced from 30 hours biennially to 24 hours biennially. 

 

2. The Ethics requirement reduces from 6 hours biennially to 3 hours biennially.

 

3. The uniform change also restricts licensees from repeating the same CE course in the same renewal filing period.


2) Resident Renewal and Reinstatement Process

Resident licensees are required to renew their license prior to their license expiration. A licensee that misses their renewal deadline may file a late renewal, which includes a $15 late fee in addition to the renewal fee, within 15 days of the license expiration date.

Licensees that fail to successfully renew their license are allowed to reinstate within 12 months of their expiration date. To be considered for reinstatement the following must be submitted:

  • Form GID103
  • Completion of all required CE. The total number of CE hours required can vary based on length of service as a licensee, carry-over hours and professional designations. You may check your CE transcript at www.sircon.com/georgia
  • Appropriate payment. Payment requires renewal fee(based on license type), late fee($15), application fee($15) and penalty ($150).
  • If a licensee fails to complete the reinstatement process within 6 months of their expiration date, electronic fingerprinting is required.

If the reinstatement process is not completed within 12 months of the expiration date of the license, all prelicensing requirements must be met if the applicant wishes to be licensed again.


 3) On-line license printing

 4) Electronic Fingerprinting Requirements

Effective January 1, 2010, all new resident applicants, excluding active licensees and individuals that apply for reinstatement within 6 months of expiration date, shall be required to submit electronic fingerprints through a vendor selected by the Department for a criminal background check. The applicant shall bear the cost for electronic fingerprinting.  Click for more information.
