License renewal

Each resident producer may renew the license biennially. The biennial due date is the producer's birth date in each odd year for producers born in an odd-numbered year or each even year for producers born in an even-numbered year. For newly licensed producers, such date shall not be earlier than two years from the date of the producer's initial licensure.

Resident producers must submit proof of continuing education by the biennial due date.
