License Renewal

It is time to renew your license for 2020

Your current license is valid through Dec. 31, 2019. You must renew your license before this
date to avoid the $50 late fees or the inactivation of your license. You can renew your license using
this renewal form. If you have multiple licenses, they can each be renewed on one renewal form.

Forty (40) hours of continuing education are required for this renewal. At least four
(4) of the required hours must be on the subject of ethics as it relates to counseling, documented by
a specific certificate/proof of attendance. The subject of ethics must be documented in a published
program, title or breakout description. Proof of your ethics continuing education is required to be
submitted with your renewal application. Copies of your certificates of completion for the ethics
course(s) are acceptable.

Proof of the remaining continuing education hours on your renewal application do not need
to be provided with your renewal application, but do need to be retained by you for a period of at
least five years for audit purposes under ARSD 20:68:07:18.

NOTE: If this is your first license renewal you can’t count any CEUs prior to having
your licensed issued.

If you have any questions about the continuing education requirements or the deadline to
renew, please contact our office at 605.224.1721 or SDBCE@midwestsolutionssd.com. Thank you!
