How Florida license validation differs from Ongoing License Status Verification

Florida License Validation: A free service to educational providers

We all know how many times a Florida licensee will give you an incorrect license number and then get upset their continuing education was not reported properly. When you ask for a Florida license number on your website, an instant online transaction with CE Broker can check the license number. The Internet-based license validation is made possible when your system developers use XML Web service to communicate system-to-system. The CE Broker system would respond whether the Florida license number received is valid and, if valid, provide the licensee name on record. Think of it as a credit card transaction. You go to the gas station to pump gas and before you actually start pumping, your credit card is validated at the pump. It is the same with the license validation. While the licensee is registering for your course, the CE Broker system can respond instantly to your online validation request. The license validation is a service to educational providers. A different service is available to employers that provides primary source license verification ongoing.
