The 2013 Renewal Is Now Over
If you have not renewed your Kentucky respiratory license by now, you will have to do a reinstatement of licensure and pay the fee of $150.00 as check or money order. The reinstatement form can be found on our Forms and Applications page of the website.
If you have had any misdemeanor, felony charges or arrests since your last renewal and have not contacted the Board, it will keep you from renewing online and possibly delay your renewal process until the Board views all information. Contact the Board immediately if this applies to you.
All CEUs must have been completed no later than 12/31/2012
Be Aware If You Do Not Renew And Attempt To Work Without A License (Lapsed Licensure—No Licensure)
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.
UPDATE: If you have saved our KBRC website in a favorites category, you must delete it and save our website again in order to use the new link we have installed below for verification checking.
Verification Check Link
Note: The official primary source verification details generated by this application is designed to give respiratory depts. and H.R. depts. evidence of Kentucky licensure and will not show or convey any disciplinary actions. It is intended to show name, status, issue date, expiration and certification number. States will not accept this verification form as a State Verification due to lack of disciplinary status. State verification forms and all written requests for a letter of good standing should be mailed to the KBRC office with $15.00 fee and we will direct your request to the appropriate Board ASAP.
