MCB Reinstatement Period

The Missouri Credentialing Board has decided to allow a credential reinstatement period for anyone who may have let any MCB credential lapse since April 30, 2012.

MCB will be conducting a reinstatement period during January/February 2016. To reinstate a credential, a professional will need to submit:
1 period of renewal hours for the credential being reinstated – examples are:

  • 40 hours with 6 live ethics for CCJP

  • 20 hours with 3 live ethics for RASAC II

  • 6 hours of medication/pharmacology/brain disease training for MARS

All hours must be obtained since the credential expired.
1 renewal fee payment – examples are:

  • $190.00 for CCJP

  • $95.00 for RASAC II

  • $25.00 for a 2nd credential – for instance if you kept your CRADC but let a CCJP or CCDP-D expire.

1 reinstatement fee of $150.00 – this fee is the same for all credential reinstatements

If you are interested in reinstating an expired credential,
please e-mail Scott Breedlove ( with your current mailing address and a reinstatement packet will be e- mailed or mailed to you in December 2015. E-mailing Scott will save MCB from sending you a follow up postcard.

If you have any questions, please call MCB at 573-616-2300.
