The Missouri Division of Professional Registration has a listing of all those professions in Missouri that are regulated by the state. When you click on the one that applies to your line of work, the requirements, application, and other information will be on the left.
Once you have fulfilled all of the requirements and training for a specific license, submit an application.
If you are hiring new employees, or need to check on a certification for any other reason, you will be able to search the database of licensees, as well as renew your professional license and in some cases, get information on continuing education.
