LARA License FAQs
If a licensee has already had a Criminal Background Check (CBC) and fingerprints pursuant to MCL 333.16174(3) the licensee would not need to obtain another CBC, fingerprints again for licensure of a different health profession that we regulate.

Continuing education for renewal or relicensure

Speech-Language Pathologists will need to earn their first set of 20 CPD / 1 CPD in pain and symptom management during the cycle that begins in 2017 for those that renewed your license in 2017.  If you renew your license in 2018 your first cycle will begin in 2018. They will have their first set of 20 CPD / 1 CPD in pain and symptom management completed prior to their renewal for the 2019 cycle (or 2020 for those renewing in 2018). .1 ASHA CEU is equivalent to 1.0 CPD for licensure purposes.

Beginning with the 2018 renewal cycle, and all renewal cycles thereafter, licensees much have completed training in identifying victims of human trafficking that meet the standards established in Administrative Rule338.604 in order to renew their license. Beginning in 2021, individuals seeking initial licensure must have completed human trafficking training prior to obtaining a license as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Licensees, or individuals seeking licensure, must complete the training in identifying victims of human trafficking only one time. The Department may select an audit sample and request documentation of proof of completion of the training.
