Notice Regarding Extension of Licenses Pursuant to Executive Order 20-64

On September 10, 2020, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly issued Executive Order 20-64 granting the professional and occupational licensing agencies the authority to extend without penalty the renewal deadlines for licenses that expired or will expire during the State of Disaster Emergency (https://governor.kansas.gov/executive-order-no-20-64/). This order is in effect and remains in force until rescinded, until January 26, 2020, or until the statewide State of Disaster Emergency extended by House Bill 2016 enacted during the June 2020 special session relating to COVID-19 expires, whichever is earlier.

The State of Disaster Emergency, as extended by the State Finance Council on November 13, 2020, will expire on December 15, 2020.  Therefore, pursuant to Executive Order 20-64, all complete renewal applications for licenses expired or set to expire between March 12, 2020 and December 15, 2020, as well as any required continuing education, will be considered timely if received by the Board on or before December 15, 2020. However, the Board will consider the renewal application late if received after December 15, 2020, and a late fee will apply.  

ACCESS TO THE ONLINE RENEWAL PORTAL

The Kansas State Board of Technical Professions would like to remind everyone that only the licensee should be accessing his or her renewal portal. Please note that allowing others to access the portal on your behalf may result in discipline to your license. Please be advised the Principal in Responsible Charge should be the only employee accessing the businesses' renewal portal.

Notice Regarding Extension of Licenses Pursuant 

to Executive Order 20-19

The Governor has issued an Executive Order requiring all State licensing authorities to extend the renewal deadline for licenses that expire during the State of Emergency Disaster Declaration, if the licenses were in good standing on March 12, 2020. The extension lasts until 90 days after the State of Disaster Emergency ends. Licenses that were current and valid on March 12, 2020 will remain valid until the extension expires. The Executive Order also requires licensing authorities to extend the deadlines for continuing education requirements until 90 days after the end of the State of Disaster Emergency.  See https://governor.kansas.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/EO-20-19-Executed.pdf.

Also, per the Governor’s Executive Order, the State Board of Technical Professions will not apply any late, delinquent, penalty, or expiration fees to renewals that meet the requirements above. Fees and penalties will be applied for licenses covered by the Order that are not renewed within the extension period, for licenses that expire after the State of Emergency Disaster ends and are not renewed within the standard deadlines, and for licenses that expired before March 12, 2020 and were not renewed within the standard deadlines.
