    Status Definitions

    • Active:  Licensee may practice a technical profession in the state of Kansas.  Active licensees are subject to all renewal and continuing education requirements.
    • Inactive:  Licensee may not practice a technical profession in the state of Kansas.  Renewal fees are still paid but licensees are exempt from continuing education requirements while in this status.  Inactive status is normally used as a way to prevent a license from being cancelled and the need to be reinstated.
    • Emeritus:  Licensee may not practice a technical profession in the state of Kansas, however, may use their professional title in conjunction with the word “Emeritus”.  Emeritus licenses are exempt from renewal fees and continuing education requirements.  License does not expire or need to be renewed.  Applicants for Emeritus status must be at least 60 years old.
    • Cancelled:  Licensee no longer holds a professional license and cannot practice a technical profession in the state of Kansas.  Cancelled licensees must complete a Reinstatement application process before their licenses can become Active.  
    • Pending:  An application for a professional license has been submitted but is not complete.  This can mean that supporting documents are missing from an application or that an applicant is currently in the exam process.  An applicant may not practice until a license is Active.  In many cases if a Pending status is more than a year old then a new application must be submitted.  Please contact the Board office if you have any questions regarding a Pending status.
