Request a Wall Certificate

All licensees and certificate holders are issued a license / certificate electronically when licensed.  This is sent to the email address on file with the office.  If you would like a wall certificate as well, please send a letter requesting a wall certificate to our office: NH OPLC, 7 Eagle Square, Concord, NH 03301.  The letter must include a check or money order for $20 dollars (cash is not accepted), as well as the licensee or certificate holder’s name as it appears on the license, license # (from the electronically issued license), profession licensed under and email and phone contact information, should we need to contact you.  Upon receipt, the wall certificate will be mailed within approximately 30 days, as this printing is done by a vendor outside our office.  Please contact OPLC Customer Support at with any questions.
