Renewal notices are printed and mailed to the address on file approx. 5-6 weeks prior to the expiration date of the license or certificate (see your pocket card or Searches for Licensees). Contact information and individual expiration dates can be confirmed on our website under the bullet Searches for Licensees. Personal License Renewal forms have a pocket card upper portion that you retain - send the bottom portion in with your payment. No other receipt is provided.
You can verify we received the renewal (COA or Personal License/Certificate) by your cancelled check or on our website (updated expiration date). COA paper renewals are similar, but no pocket card and the whole renewal form is returned to us with the payment. You can also verify we received the renewal payment online looking for the updated expiration date. For both personal licenses and certificates and COA's, if you renew online - an email receipt is sent to you.
If you have not received your renewal notice by the 15th of the month in which your license/certificate expires, please email Edith.Williams@ipels.idaho.gov and provide updated contact information and/or to request a duplicate renewal form to be faxed or emailed to you. You must provide your Idaho license or certificate number, contact address, fax number, your DOB (MM/DD/YY) and the last four numbers of your SSN for verification purposes.
If you wish to claim a Military Exemption from paying renewal fees, please sign the renewal notice as required and attach a copy of your military ID card or current orders.
If you don't know your company's COA number, you can search for it at Searches for Licensees and enter the company name in the last name field.
If you do not wish to renew your license or certificate, please either return the renewal notice sent to you with a corresponding note or email Edith.Williams@ipels.idaho.gov. If you have a COA there is an option now to 'discontinue' your certificate. The benefit to 'discontinuing' the COA is that if you need to again practice in Idaho, you will only pay a new application fee (currently $200) vs. paying a renewal fee and late fees which can accumulate to a maximum of $500. There is no such option for a license. Renewal of an EI or SI certificate is purely optional - no late fees accrue.
As of 7-1-13, all late license renewals must be accompanied with the licensee's continuing professional development (CPD) log . For more information, see Continuing Professional Development. No longer will all license renewals be required to submit a log. If the renewal is more than 3 months late, attendance documents must be submitted in addition to the log.
