To be deductible, your expenses must be for education that either maintains or improves your job skills, or is required by your employer or by law to keep your salary, status or job.

Expenses to learn a new trade or job or to qualify for anew career aren't deductible

So, you must be actually employed to claim your professional license renewal.
