Professional Counselor Reinstatement of a Lapsed License

 
Before applying for licensure, please familiarize yourself with the general licensing policies.
 

An applicant for reinstatement of a license that has lapsed due to nonrenewal shall provide the following documentation:

 

A completed, notarized application with photograph and fee in the amount of $315.00 in the form or a bank check or money order payable to, "Treasurer, State of Connecticut";

 

A current curriculum vitae (CV) including a synopsis of professional activity since completion of professional education;

 

Verification of any out-of-state license or certification held, current or expired, submitted directly to this office from the source.  Please contact the state prior to submitting the request form as most states charge a fee for this service;

 

Verification from the appropriate authority confirming your most recent employment as a professional counselor; including dates and an overall evaluation of your ability to practice with reasonable skill and safety.   If you are in private practice, a letter from another practitioner with whom you have a referral relationship indicating the dates of the referral relationship and an evaluation of your ability to practice with reasonable skill and safety.

 

Verification of completion of the required number of hours of continuing education (CE):

 

If the license has been lapsed for two years or less, a minimum of 15 hours of qualifying continuing education completed during the one-year period immediately preceding the application for reinstatement;

 

If the license has been lapsed for more than two years, a minimum of 30 hours of qualifying continuing education completed during the two-year period immediately preceding the application for reinstatement; 

 

Please note that a professional counselor who has been out of active, clinical practice for a significant period of time may be required to complete additional training or an examination.  Applicants to whom this applies will receive further information from the Department upon receipt of an application.
