The Office of Occupations and Professions is now the Kentucky Department of Professional Licensing (DPL). The website will soon be updated to reflect the new structure of the department.
In December, Governor Matt Bevin issued an executive order altering the structure of the Office of Occupations and Professions to form the Department of Professional Licensing. The department will provide oversight for the state’s occupational licensing boards and will continue to provide administrative and fiscal management, technical support, and advice to licensing boards.

This website features access to each of the professional boards maintained by the department. The individual board websites offer useful information for licensees and the public. Features include meeting information, member rosters, board administrator information, printable application and renewal forms (if not available online), certified license verification, and links to professional associations.
The websites also feature the Kentucky statutes and regulations governing the practice of each profession and printable instructions and forms for filing a complaint against a licensed professional. An online database is available and allows users to determine the status of any licensee and search for a registered professional by region or county.
