By the Division of Professional Licensure


The Division of Professional Licensure is an "umbrella" agency within the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation. The Division is responsible for en-suring the integrity of the licensure process for more than 45 trades and professions regulated by 31 Boards of Registration, the continual updating of licenses for over 330,000 licensees, and the maintenance of multiple databases related to licensing, en-forcement, and revenue collection. This work is accomplished through the combined efforts of the members of the Boards and the staff of Board offices, Computer Services, the Accounting Unit, the Office of Legal Counsel, the Office of Prosecutions, the Office of Investigations, and the Administrative Office.

OUR MISSION
