Important Note for New Applicants for a Regular License in Respiratory Therapy (LRT)

Current statute provides that all LRT's issued have the same expiration date regardless of issue date. The next expiration for all LRT's is 10/31/2019. Therefore, if you apply now for your LRT and receive it, it will be due to expire soon. If you are not planning on working until after 11/01/2019, your license issuance can be held if you request this in writing either with your application or e-mailed to Otherwise, your new license can be issued upon completion of your application with the understanding that you will be scheduled to renew this license by 10/31/2019 and obtain 1 CE hour for each month you held this license (for example, if your new license is issued in June, you would need 5 hours of CE to renew in October for a five month license). The above information only applies to LRT's - not Temporary Licensees (temporary licenses for recent graduates expire 6 months from date of issuance).
