Continuing Education Information and Listings

CE Information

Continuing education, or CE, is any educational activity accredited by the Board. CE includes educational activities designed principally to maintain or increase the professional competence of licensees or the understanding of the professional responsibilities of licensees.

For licensees required to complete CE for annual license renewal, the five hours of approved CE shall meet the following requirements:

  1. Up to two hours may be in courses required by the Board. If the Board requires licensees to take a particular required course or courses, the Board shall notify licensees no later than October 1 of the year preceding the calendar year in which the course(s) will be required.
  2. Through December 31, 2021, licensees may take up to ten [10] hours of continuing education by computer-based CE approved by the Board. Five [5] hours may be applied to the 2022 license renewal CE requirement, and the additional five [5] hours may be rolled over to the next year for the 2023 license renewal cycle.  

Please Remember…

  • Those licensed in 2021 are not required to have completed continuing education as a requirement for their 2022 license renewal. Those licensed in 2021, however, may choose to acquire CE credit and roll those credits over to 2022. You cannot roll over more than 5 hours of credit.

  • You cannot receive credit for the same CE course taken within a 2-year period.
