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.
Information about the fees charged for applications, renewals, reinstatements, verifications and other services is available here.
