Additional License Renewal Information

  • Audit of renewals--10 percent of the renewal applications will be audited. If you renew online and receive an audit letter from the BOEE you have 30 days to send in all necessary paperwork to renew the appropriate license. False or incomplete information warrants a violation and a complaint will be issued against the person.

Background checks are being done for all license renewals using three registries: sex abuse, child abuse and dependent adult abuse.

  • If the BOEE has your current e-mail address, a reminder will be sent 1 year and 1 month before the expiration of the current license.
