Application for License/Registration/Permit - Online Licensing Database & Services
To make application for a license, registration or permit, please visit the Board's online licensing database. After logging in to your personal account, you may make application for a new license or renewal, submit a change of address, and make a number of other requests online. Payment may be made by credit card, or check/money order. The online shop also allows you to purchase and request a number of items online.
The average length of time for an application for license/registration to be issued, after all required items are received, is as follows:
Peak months of April - September: Five to ten business days for all applications for license/registration.
Five to ten business days for trainees.
Non-peak months of October - March: Three to five business days for all applications for license/registration. Three to five business days for trainees.
Please be aware of the following:
- Applications submitted on paper may take 4-6 weeks longer to process than applications submitted electronically through the online licensing database.
- Applications and other requests are not considered complete until the appropriate fee(s) have been received.
- In order for CPR certification to be accepted for the purposes of initial application and renewal, the CPR course must be a nationally-recognized course that includes a clinical, "hands-on" portion. Online-only certification courses are not acceptable pursuant to Iowa Administrative Code 650.

To avoid late fees, renewal forms must be completed by August 31, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. if completed electronically via the online services website. If submitting a paper renewal, it must be completely filled out and postmarked by August 31. Renewals completed or postmarked September 1, 2021 or later will be subject to late fees. Incomplete paper renewals may be returned and subject to a late fee.
