Stay Informed of Important Law Changes
The BBS provides a number of resources in its Forms and Publications section to assist you in understanding licensing requirements, including student handbooks, guides to supervision, and answers to most frequently asked questions. An excellent resource for staying informed of changes to BBS licensing requirements is the BBS Email Subscriber list. Consider signing up to stay informed!
Effective January 1, 2012, several changes were made to the Board's Disclosure and Advertising Laws.
Prior to mailing any application (examination application and license renewal) to the Board, we strongly encourage all individuals to review their application and verify the application is complete and include all required forms and appropriate fees. A completed application provides the best opportunity to avoid delays in approving the applicant for the licensure examination and any lapses in licensure that may affect licensees' current employment.
Processing times are dependent upon the number of vacancies within the specific unit and the volume of applications received. For the week of May 20, 2013, staff is working on applications received during the week(s) noted below. This information will be updated on a weekly basis.
