Behavior Specialist License Renewal Begins
October 3, 2014

The State Board of Medicine has posted the application for renewal of the Behavior Specialist license. Regulations call for renewal of this license biannually by December 31 on even numbered years. This is the first year in which licensed Behavior Specialists will be engaged in the renewal process.

Behavior Specialists are encouraged to complete the application process early to avoid any complications in the process and related service billing implications. RCPA has confirmed with the State Board of Medicine that applicants for this renewal cycle do not need to complete Act 31 child abuse mandated reporter training prior to submitting the renewal application, provided the renewal is completed on time. Applications for license renewals submitted after December 31 are subject to the Act 31 training requirement.
