Renewal Applications


2020 Apprentice & Optician License Renewal Applications

Important information for everyone renewing in 2020: We have just launched a brand new system that includes a user dashboard for each licensee. When you click the link below, you will be asked for your email address (this must match the email we have on file for you). You will then be emailed temporary login credentials and from there can access the renewal form. You will also be able to access other user functions, such as viewing your license information, printing additional receipts or license certificates, and updating your contact information. Please note that while the system is new, we are still in the process of making updates that couldn't be made while the system was under construction. If you have sent information updates to the board in the past few months, the information displayed on your dashboard may be outdated. Please update as much information as possible on your renewal form and bear with us while we continue updating making updates to the system. Thank you!

Apprentices: Apprentices must meet eligibility requirements in order to renew their licenses for 2020. If you were licensed prior to November 1, 2015, you have already renewed your license 4 times and cannot renew again unless you have obtained an extension from the board. If you have been licensed for 6 months or more, and have not yet submitted proof of enrollment in a board-approved education program, your renewal will be denied. You may submit your proof of enrollment by logging into the system and clicking on the tab marked "Education Program." All eligible apprentices may set up a user account and renew their licenses.

Opticians: Once you create your account, you can review the CE credits you submitted with your 2019 renewal by clicking the "Course Credits" tab at the top of the page. When entering your 2020 credits, please be thorough when entering course titles and enter names rather than course numbers - this will be your record for the following year. Create an account and access the renewal form.

If you have any technical difficulties while renewing, please send an email to: info@nvopticians.org and we will assist you as soon as possible. Thank you!
