IMPORTANT NOTICE TO LICENSE APPLICANTS
Be sure to allow adequate time for your license application to be reviewed.
Chapter 497.167(9), Florida Statutes, requires an application to be complete at least 25 days in advance of a regularly scheduled board meeting to be considered by the board at such meeting. The Licensing Unit has internal deadlines for identifying application deficiencies, processing completed applications and submitting applications for board action. Application processing begins when an application is received in the Licensing Unit. All requirements must be received, reviewed and acted upon two weeks prior to the next board meeting. Board agendas are then produced and all processed applications and documents are copied and submitted to the board members for their review one week prior to the board meeting.

The Division uses the DICE electronic data tracking system to manage continuing education data.
