Occupational Licensing

The Licensing Division, in conjunction with state licensing boards, regulates 14 occupational professions in Michigan under the Michigan Occupational Code. This division is responsible for providing customer service, pre-licensure support and application processing. Team members in the Licensing Division fulfill a number of functions such as reviewing applications; processing renewals; issuing licenses, registrations, and/or certificates; and maintaining all licensing records for almost 300,000 professionals.


As of June 3, 2020 PSI and other test providers have resumed testing. Applicants whose eligibility expired while the testing sites were closed due to the emergency, between March 13, 2020 through June 2, 2020, will have their eligibility extended until October 3, 2020. Additionally, due to a surge in testing demand and limited seating, applications in the system prior to June 3, 2020 will have their eligibility extended by four months to assure they have their full years' worth of eligibility.  Applications moving forward (beginning June 4, 2020), will go back to the original eligibility process, which gives the applicant one year to take and pass their licensure examination.  Applicants should contact PSI or their test provider to schedule their examination.  Contact PSI by going to  or  or by calling 1-800-733-9267.
