Due to the Coronavirus Outbreak, and its effect on upcoming CEU classes that were to be taught in person prior to the 2021 renewal deadline, the NCALB will allow licensees to renew their license for the 2021 Renewal Period ONLY, without regard to the number of in person CEUs that have been obtained. The amount of renewal credits required will remain the same, but online classes may be used to fulfill the in-person requirement of 12 credits, without penalty.
Renewal Guidelines: Renewal Rules and Regulations
For Renewal of License
The procedure and requirements for renewal of a license are as follows:
(1) The license shall be renewed every two years on July 1. Failure to receive notification during this period does not relieve the licensee of the responsibility of meeting the continuing education requirements and renewal of his or her license.
(2) An applicant for license renewal shall acknowledge on the form prepared by the Board that the licensee has completed the required continuing education units, the number of units completed of the programs completed. The licensee shall retain such receipts, vouchers, or certificates as may be necessary to document completion of the continuing education units required. Keep your original CEU certificates and attach copies of the certificates to your renewal application.
On this page you will find the forms to renew your license. As a courtesy, the Board will send you a reminder via mail or email at least 60 days prior to your renewal date. Please be sure to update the NCALB on any address changes or email address changes. Failure to receive notification during this period does not relieve the licensee of the responsibility of meeting the continuing education requirements and renewal of his or her license.
Within these forms are the rules and regulations which govern renewal of licenses in NC. There you will find the breakdown of the 40 hours needed to renew. Please keep in mind that all courses should be approved by one of the listed organizations in the rules and regulations.
