Respiratory License Renewal – Oklahoma

When does my license expire?

Respiratory Care Practitioner licenses shall be renewed every two years on or before the last day of the month in which initial licensure was granted.

When can I renew my license?

“Although there is no statutory requirement to give notice, the Board does mail renewal notices approximately sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of a license. All notices are mailed to the mailing address we have on file. Please keep the Board informed of your current mailing address at all times. If you did not receive a notice, contact the Board office and a duplicate will be sent. Within the next few months we will start mailing a reminder card 30 days prior to expiration if you have not renewed. Any renewal post-marked after the expiration date is considered late and the late fee will be required. Not receiving a notice is not grounds for waiving the late fee.”
