Respiratory License Renewal – Missouri

When does my license expire?

A Missouri license shall be renewed biennially. The board shall mail a notice to each person licensed during the preceding licensing period at least thirty calendar days prior to the expiration date of the license. Each respiratory care practitioner shall provide the board with a completed renewal form issued by the board that shall contain updated information since the preceding application/renewal period and verification of completion of the required continuing education hours pursuant to rules promulgated by the board.

When can I renew my license?

The Missouri Board for Respiratory Care (MBRC) will mail a notice to each person licensed during the preceding licensing period at least 30 calendar days prior to the expiration of the license.

How do I renew my license?

To renew your license, you will need to use your Online PIN and License Number that was provided on the postcard the MBRC sent.

How many CEUs does Missouri require?

Respiratory care practitioners need to complete at least 24 credits/hours of continuing education every 24 months. The continuing education reporting period is the twenty-four (24)-month period beginning on August 1 of even numbered years and ending on July 31 of even numbered years. Continuing education hours earned after July 31 shall apply to the next continuing education reporting period. A certificate holder must report during registration if she or he has completed the required continuing education during the previous two years (biennial registration period). At least 12 contact hours must be in traditional courses (such as our Live CEU courses). The remainder can be from non-traditional courses (e.g. our Self-Directed CEU courses). If you’d prefer to avoid test-taking, we recommend taking all Live courses to obtain your 24 hours of continuing education. See our Discounts page for special offers.

Can I get all of my CEUs online?

Yes, you can get all 24 online, as long as at least 12 are live with opportunity for instructor interaction. Our live courses meet this requirement.

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

Our courses are AARC approved and therefore accepted by the MBRC.

How much does my renewal cost?

License renewal is $30. An initial license is $40.
