Telephone Maintenance
The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency has planned telephone maintenance scheduled for January 24th, 2017. On this day, callers attempting to reach a licensing board directly may instead be directed to our general telephone menu and asked to navigate to the board they wish to reach. Please listen to the options carefully and select your profession to be directed to a customer service representative that can assist you. You may call (317) 232-2960 to access this telephone menu. We encourage you to contact us by email if you encounter any issues. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Indiana is a great state to live, work and raise a family.  At the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, we want to help Hoosiers get the tools they need to succeed in the workplace, so businesses can flourish. Our focus isn’t regulatory burden, but rather economic growth and delivering a high level of customer service to every Hoosier licensee.

We license professions as set in statute by the Indiana General Assembly.  The governor appoints members of the oversight boards and commissions, and our staff navigates the details and provides customer support to license almost half a million working Hoosiers.

Our website is designed to be a one-stop-shop to get you what you need.

The navigation tools on the left and right side bars allow you to do business as efficiently as possible.  You can renew your license or search for licensed professionals.  You can learn about educational or other requirements needed for a license by clicking on each Profession, order a license card and much more.

I firmly believe that public service is a public trust. At IPLA, our agency is dedicated to serving Hoosiers in an expeditious manner that will keep our economy growing and on the right track. By working together, we can build a better future.

Let’s get to work!

1. Occupations that may be included on the registry;
2. Whether to provide title protection for the individuals included on the list;
3. Enforcement provisions that would be used;
4. A description of auditing and maintenance of the list;
5. The cost of establishing and maintaining the list; and
6. The cost of an individual applying for and renewing inclusion on the list.
