LICENSING SYSTEM FOR REGISTERED SANITARIANS (Effective 8/2015)
State of Ohio recently implemented a new licensing system
for registered sanitarians ONLY. As part of the new system,
all new applicants will be asked to create a user profile
to access the system & will be notified how to do so beginning
in August 2015.
logging in to access your licensure information, all users
will be required to provide updated address and contact information.
Once this is completed, users will be able to apply for licenses,
renew licenses, and submit service requests, such as address
changes and license verifications.
those of you expiring on January 31, 2016, renewals will now
be accessed through the system starting on December 1, 2015.
Please ensure that you verify the accuracy of the information
in your user profile prior to that date, including a valid
for SIT's, Training Agency's and CE submission will be coming
soon. We hope that you are as excited about the benefits of
this new system as we are!
December 1, 2014, the Board will no longer be mailing out pocket
ID cards. If you need to verify yourself or an individual on
your staff, please visit the Board website License Verification
link. Enter the profession (Sanitarian Board should be selected
if you access this via the Board website), the individuals last
and first names only and hit search. If you click on the individuals
name it will pull up their registration information. This verification
is real time and offers the same information we print on pocket
ID cards. Please do not enter any additional information or
change any of the information that is pre-populated on this
screen. It may cause the computer system to return inaccurate
results. If you need assistance with this process, please feel
free to contact the Board office.
