RCP License Renewal

It’s almost time for Delaware-licensed Respiratory Care Practitioners to renew their licenses. Here is some important information:

Make sure you have the requisite number of continuing education units. You need twenty (20) contact hours of continuing education every two years. At least 10 of the required contact hours must be from traditional programs attended either in person or remotely by the use of telecommunication technology that allows you to interact with and ask questions of the presenter during the presentation.

If you do not have enough CEUs, you might want to sign up for the DSRC annual conference on October 23, 2014. It is approved for 6 traditional CEUs which count for this renewal cycle. Information about the conference and how to register is at the DSRC STORE..

For each renewal period, you must take the online training entitled Medical Professionals Mandatory Reporting Training. To register for the training, go to http://ocade.server.tracorp.com/. When you register, select Medical Professionals on the Group Code drop-down.

A few people have asked whether the Criminal History Record Check Authorization form and the Delaware Child Protection Registry Request form need to be submitted for a renewal. They do not, nor do you need to have fingerprints done again.
