IF YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO RENEW AND DO NOT HAVE A SECURITY CODE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER BEFORE CALLING THE BOARD OFFICE. SECURITY CODES WERE EMAILED ON JANUARY 7, 2020. THE SUBJECT LINE READS "IMPORTANT!! AZ OT/OTA License Renewal Reminder".
The Board voted on September 16, 2019, to give the executive director the authority to approve licenses (initial, renewal, and reinstatements) that do not require Board review. That means applicants do not have to wait for a Board meeting to have their licenses approved and issued.
How soon after the Board approves my application will I receive my license?
The Board staff issue licenses within 5 working days after the Board meets. Therefore, depending on where you are and the time it takes for you to receive your mail it may be up to 2 weeks after the Board meeting.
Is there a cut off time for getting my documents submitted to be issued an initial or renewal license?
Yes, completed applications must be received at least 2-3 weeks before the Board meeting to allow enough time for processing. However, the sooner you submit your documents the better and they can be submitted sooner than the 2-3 week timeframe.
My license expires after one board meeting but before the next meeting, what do I do?
The Board staff track such situations and will issue you an extension to your existing license which will cover the gap. This extension will become void once the Board meets and reviews your application for license.
