posted Monday, February 4, 2013
Secretary of State Jim Condos is pleased to announce that paperless licensing is coming soon to the 45 professions and occupations regulated within the Secretary of State's Office of Professional Regulation (OPR). After successful implementation of a new licensing and enforcement system in 2009, all 45 professions and 59,000 licensees regulated by the Office already are now able to renew their licenses quickly and easily online every two years. With a recent 2012 upgrade, the OPR is now able to produce a printable digital copy of the licensee's certificate at the time of online renewal. This eliminates the need to print, stuff and mail the approximate 20,000 licenses renewed each year.
