To renew an active license, you must attest to completing the required continuing education (CE). Section 8.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations explains the CE requirements.
Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispenser licensees will also be asked about equipment calibration. Section 7.0 of the Rules and Regulations explains the calibration requirement.
Following the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be randomly selected for audit of their CE. The equipment calibration records of the selected Audiology and Hearing Aid Dispenser licensees will also be audited.
If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice while your license is expired.
To resume practicing in Delaware, you may file a late renewal application for a period of one year after the expiration date. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee.
