License Renewal

As a condition of renewing an Ohio license, completion of the required CE hours will be verified through CE Broker.  If CE hours are not reported as completed in CE Broker, the licensee will not be permitted to complete the online renewal process until CE is reported as complete. As a reminder, when giving your license number for a CE class, you must use the pre-fix and license number (example:  COS.111111).  If pre-fix and number are not accurate, credit will not show in your CE Broker account.

All CE providers are required to submit class attendance to CE Broker.  Please log in to your CE Broker account or create an account to review reported hours and identify missing CE prior to renewing your license.     Click here to log in to or activate your CE Broker account
