Code Enforcement Officer in Training Renew Online Download PDF $50

A registration as a code enforcement officer is valid for a period of two years.
A registration as a code enforcement officer in training is valid for a period of one year.


Renewal of Expired Registration

A late renewal means the registrant will have a period of non-registration from the expiration date of the expired registration to the issuance date of the renewed registration. During the unregistered period, a person may not claim to be a code enforcement officer or code enforcement officer in training, or use the titles “code enforcement officer” or “code enforcement officer in training.”

A person whose registration has been expired for 90 days or less may renew the registration by paying to the department a renewal fee that is equal to 1-1/2 times the normally required renewal fee.

A person whose registration has been expired for more than 90 days but less than 18 months may renew the registration by paying to the department a renewal fee that is equal to two times the normally required renewal fee.

On approval by the executive director (see Request to Executive Director for Expired License Renewal Form PDF), a person whose registration has been expired for at least 18 months but less than three years may renew the registration by paying to the department a renewal fee equal to two times the normally required renewal fee.


Applicants with Criminal Convictions

As part of the registration process, all applicants must successfully pass a criminal history background check.

Please see the Guidelines for License Applicants with Criminal Convictions, which describe the process by which TDLR determines whether a criminal conviction renders an applicant an unsuitable candidate for registration, or whether a conviction warrants revocation or suspension of a registration previously granted.
