RCP License Renewal

Here is some important information:

The licensure period runs for 2 years starting from November 1st to October 31st.

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.

For each renewal period, you must take the online training entitled Medical Professionals Mandatory Reporting Training. To register for the training, go to 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.
