The Department of Business and Professional Regulation Provides New Web-based Feature for Applicants
December 29, 2008
TALLAHASSEE—The Department of Business and Professional Regulation is offering a new Web-based feature for professionals seeking a license in Florida. The new feature assists applicants in obtaining comprehensive information regarding the requirements for becoming licensed and common deficiencies.
“We have a duty to provide all of the needed and helpful information to our applicants before they begin the application process,” said Secretary Charles W. Drago. “These new tools will help our applicants understand what is required and how to avoid application deficiencies, in turn helping them get licensed more quickly.”
The new feature can be found on the DBPR’s Web site, MyFloridaLicense.com, on each profession’s application forms page. The pages include a link to professional qualifications/requirements and a link to common application deficiencies. The Division of Professions has rolled out this new feature for the boards of Architecture and Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Veterinary Medicine, and other board pages will be updated in the near future. The new tools are intended to reduce deficiency letters and to help applicants become licensed more efficiently.
The Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s mission is to license efficiently and regulate fairly. The department licenses more than one million businesses and professionals ranging from real estate agents, veterinarians, and accountants to contractors and cosmetologists.
