In Washington, licenses expire every 2 years. Licensees can renew 120 days before their license expires. Continuing education courses are not reported to the State unless requested by the State.  In the case of an audit, schools do not send information to the State. Rather, the State requires licensees to submit copies of their course completion certificates to the State directly.

On their website the Washington Department of Licensing  (DOL) provides information for obtaining, renewing, updating and managing your license through the following links:
