Respiratory License Renewal – Michigan

When does my license expire?

Michigan license’s expire on 12/31 every 2 years.

When can I renew my license?

Licensees can begin to renew their licenses 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 do I renew my license?

Licensees are required to renew their license by using the online renewal system linked below using a debit or credit card containing a MasterCard, Visa or Discover logo or by electronic check.

How many CEUs does Michigan require?

There is no continuing education requirement in Michigan.

Beginning with the December 2018 renewal cycle, and all renewal cycles thereafter, licensees must have completed training in identifying victims of human trafficking that meet the standards established in Administrative Rule 338.2201a.

Beginning March 17, 2021, individuals seeking licensure must have completed training to identify victims of human trafficking prior to obtaining a license as a respiratory therapist.

Licensees, or individuals seeking licensure, must complete training in identifying victims of human trafficking only one time. The Department may select and audit a sample of individuals and request documentation verifying the completion of training.

The renewal fee is $156.
