Respiratory License Renewal – Michigan

When does my license expire?

Michigan licenses expire on December 31 every 2 years.

When can I renew my license?

Licensees can begin to renew their licenses with the Michigan Board of Respiratory Care (MBRC) approximately 90 days prior to the expiration date of their current license.

Licensees will be mailed a renewal notification to their address on record approximately 90 days prior to the expiration date of their license. Remember to notify the Department in writing of any address change. It’s a licensee’s responsibility to renew his or her license on time. Failure to receive the renewal notification, or to notify the Department of an address change, does not exempt a licensee from renewing their license on time.

How many CEUs does Michigan require?

The Public Health Code does not require continuing education for renewal of a Respiratory Therapist license. However, licensees are responsible for maintaining competence in their profession plus the following conditions must be met (per the Respiratory Therapist Licensing Guide – Renewal Requirements Checklist):

  1. Licensees seeking renewal must have completed training in identifying victims of human trafficking that meets the standards in Administrative Rule 338.2201a prior to renewing their license. The training must only be completed one time. Our Human Trafficking Awareness Training course meets this requirement.
  2. Beginning June 1, 2022, and all renewals thereafter, licensees seeking renewal must have completed a minimum of 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the applicant’s license cycle as established by the department in R 338.7004 of the Public Health Code – General Rules. For the first renewal on or after June 1, 2022, licensees will only need to have 1 hour for each year since the rule’s promulgation date of June 1, 2021. Our Ethical Issues: Diverse Patient Groups course meets this requirement.
