There are only two requirements to reactivate your license:
- “A licensee who holds an Ohio registration (Inactive License), and wishes to obtain the Ohio permit (Active License), must complete a total of 120 hours continuing education credit in the three years preceding application for the Ohio permit,” from the ABO's website.
- CPE requirement starts three years back from the date that the license status change form is turned in. It can be over multiple reporting periods (i.e. 2/20/06-2/20/09).
- “The licensee must submit to the Board documentation of the continuing education earned on a CPE Report Form. Examples of appropriate documentation include certificates of completion, grade reports or transcripts, and other similar evidence,” from the ABO's website.
Any other questions should be directed to the ABO:
