Respiratory License Renewal – Indiana

When does my license expire?

Licenses expire on December 31 of even years.

When can I renew my license?

Renewal notices are sent approximately 90 days prior to the expiration date. Licensees with a valid email address on file will be emailed the renewal information. Licensees who do not have a valid email address on file will be mailed license renewal information. This notice is mailed to the licensee’s address of record with the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency Respiratory Care Committee (IPLARCC).

How do I renew my license?

You can renew your license by visiting IPLARCC Renewal Information in Resource Links below. You have the option of renewing online or by mail.

How many CEUs does Indiana require?

RTs are required to complete 15 hours for the period of the renewal cycle.

Can I get all of my CEUs online?

Indiana’s requirements state that “No more than 7.5 hours of continuing education can be obtained through correspondence courses during the biennium”. When we contacted the board to find out what constituted a correspondence course, below is the message we received on Monday, May 21, 2018:

“Unfortunately, our office cannot provide an interpretation of the statutes and rules and the current laws do not specifically define ‘correspondence courses’. If you wish to seek an interpretation of the law, please contact your attorney.”

The dictionary definition of correspondence is “communication by exchanging letters with someone”. We believe this rule dates back to a time when respiratory care magazines offered mail-in tests for continuing education credit. We also believe that “correspondence courses” now refers to self-directed courses that require passing a test to prove completion of the course.

Our interpretation of the rules is that you may complete all hours online. You must have a minimum of 7.5 Live hours and a maximum of 7.5 hours of Self-Directed hours. See our Discounts page for special offers.

Are your courses approved by both the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) and the IPLARCC?

Our courses are approved by the AARC and accepted by the IPLARCC.

How much does my renewal cost?

License renewal is $50. An initial license is $50.
