Continuing education credits
To keep your license in good standing, you must take 24 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years. You can take CE courses at any time during each two-year term, but you must complete them before midnight Central Time (CT) on your license expiration date to avoid fines and delays in your license renewal.
- To ensure there is no delay, complete CE hours at least 30 days before your license expires. This will allow time for the CE providers to report the successful completion of the course to us.
