Please note, Basic First Aid, Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, medication assistance, or fire safety courses shall not be considered for continuing education credit.

Courses of study sponsored or provided by the following entities or organizations shall be approved for continuing education credits: accredited colleges or universities, Federal state or local government entities, National or state associations, or as otherwise approved by the Board.

APPROVED CE COURSES

CE providers may request Board approval by submitting a completed Continued Education Approval Form.

 

AUDITS

The Board conducts annual audits to ensure compliance with the continuing education requirements.  Audits may be initiated any time after you renew your license.  By signing your renewal application, and answering "Yes" to the question that you have met the continuing education requirements, you are certifying to the Board that you have already obtained proof of having completed the required continuing education. 

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET MET THE CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT, DO NOT SUBMIT A RENEWAL APPLICATION INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE.  Submitting a fraudulent application for licensure is grounds for discipline against your right to practice.

If you are audited, you must submit a listing of all continuing education courses completed during the previous year AND proof of attendance documentation for each course.  Continuing education hours accumulated during the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the license expiration date may be applied toward meeting the continuing education requirement for the next license renewal. Failure to submit the required documentation may result in Board action against your right to licensure. 

If you have questions about the CE requirements, you may e-mail the Bureau office.
