Forms & Fees

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.
