Florida Occupational Therapy Inactive/Retired Status

Inactive Licensees

An inactive license for an occupational therapist or occupational therapist assistant shall be reactivated upon demonstration that the licensee has satisfied the following requirements:

    • Paid the reactivation fee and any applicable delinquent or renewal fees;
    • Compete twenty-six (26) hours of approved continuing education for each full biennium in which the license was in an inactive status and for the last biennium in which the licensee held an active status license;
    • Complete a two (2) hour course on laws and rules for each full biennium in which the licensee was in an inactive status and for the last biennium in which the licensee held an active status license. This requirement shall count towards the twenty-six (26) total biennial hourly requirements, as applicable;
    • Completion of two (2) hours of approved continuing education relating to the prevention of medical errors, as authorized and prescribed in subsection 64B11-5.001(6), F.A.C., for each full biennium in which the licensee was in an inactive status and for the last biennium in which the licensee held an active status license.

A licensee may perform no more than twelve (12) hours of continuing education as home study education for each full biennium in which the licensee was in an inactive status and for the last biennium in which the licensee held an active status license.

No provision of this section shall be construed to require the completion of continuing education in any specific subject area, for any biennial period in which continuing education in that subject area was not specifically required by law for renewal of an active license.

The continuing education credits required for reactivation may be earned at any time during the inactive licensure period. Credits allowed to meet this requirement may also include up to twenty-six (26) hours of approved continuing education credits earned during the last biennium in which the licensee held an active status license.

Retired Status

A licensee may place an active or inactive license in retired status at any time. If the license is placed in retired status at the time of renewal the licensee shall pay the retired status fee of $50.00. If the license is placed in retired status at any time other than at the time of license renewal the licensee shall pay the change of status processing fee of $50.00 and the retired status fee of $50.00.

A licensee may reactivate a retired status license at any time, subject to meeting the following requirements:

    • Paying the reactivation fee, which shall be the same amount as the renewal fee for an active status licensee under these rules for each biennial licensure period in which the licensee was in retired status;
    • Demonstrating satisfaction of the continuing education requirements for each licensure biennial period in which the licensee was in retired status.
