Professional licensing goes paperless in Vermont

Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos said paperless licensing is beginning for 45 professions regulated by the department. The Office of Professional Regulation can now produce a printable digital copy of the license’s certificate at the time of online renewal. Condos said the move will save several thousand dollars each year in paper, envelopes, and postage, not to mention staff time. Paperless licensing begins with the office’s largest license renewal of registered nurses whose licenses are set to expire March 31. The office is responsible for the licensing and regulation of 45 professions and 59,000 licensees in Vermont, such as dentists, architects, and real estate brokers.
