Help Center / I just got my license last year, am I required to renew and take 26 hours of continuing education, when I’ve had my license less than a year?


Those persons certified for licensure in the second half of a biennium (on or after 3/1/2016) are exempt from the total 26 hours required continuing education requirements for that biennium, except for the mandatory two (2) hours prevention of medical errors course requirement, and the one (1) hour of HIV/AIDS education given by Board approved providers. See list of approved providers for such courses below. (Yes, you must complete an additional, update course of a prevention of medical errors, even if you just took one to complete licensure requirements. Every renewal requires another 2 hours of prevention of medical errors CE. There are many providers and you may take one from a different provider to avoid redundancy.)
