Welcome to the KBRC Website

2017 Online License Renewal is now closed.

If you are trying to renew your licensure or go to inactive status, that process has now ended. Be aware you cannot renew by submitting payment through the credit card link for reactivation. This is a different payment for activating an inactive status for therapists coming back to work. If you do this, the payment will be refunded accordingly.
Therapists who missed the renewal must now do a reinstatement.

Random audits are now set to begin. Those therapists who were audited and received their forms, please mail back completed along with copies only of your current 24 CEUs. Do not fax audits back to KBRC. Fax machine will not handle the amount or volume. Your fax could be lost and not known. Mail audits to the address below:


Kentucky Board Of Respiratory Care
2365 Harrodsburg Rd., B350
Lexington, KY 40504-3386
Office Phone: 859-246-2747
Office Fax: 859-246-2750

Note* If you renew in 2017 and do not have twenty four CEUs by Dec. 31, 2016 then be prepared for the following consequences:

Fine of $250.00 for therapists who were not slated for audit and double the amt. of CEUs not completed.

Fine of $500.00 for therapists who were slated for audit and double the amt. of CEUs not completed.

Be Aware If You Do Not Renew And Attempt To Work Without A License (Lapsed Licensure - No Licensure)

Therapists who did not renew on time are now terminated and must reinstate. (Reinstatement form is on our Forms and Applications page.)At the February 2007 meeting the Board discussed guidelines for legal counsel to take actions against individuals who have worked without proper license. The Board charged legal counsel and staff to issue Agreed Orders to those individuals found to have worked illegally, with suspensions of up to two (2 weeks) and fines up to $750 ($50 per day). Any other lapse for therapist fined over $750 and suspended more than two (2) weeks; would need approval by the Board at its next scheduled meeting before a license could be reissued or reinstated, to work again.

Online KY Status Verification Now Available

The KBRC now has online primary source verification of respiratory care therapists. This is for verification only. All other information must be requested by contacting the KBRC Board directly. Newly licensed therapists may take several days to be listed and may be verified by the KBRC by fax if needed. If all that is needed is verification in hand from the KBRC, simply print details page from browser printer and end verification process.
