Help Center / Are online courses considered live or Home study hours, and how many Home Study hours may I take?

Online courses may be “Live” or Home Study.  “Live” courses must allow the opportunity for interaction with presenter/host. A minimum of 14 “live” CE hours are required, however, all 26 CE hours may be completed as “live” online hours when meeting the interactive in real-time definition. See Rule 64B11-5.001(3), F.A.C.

Home Study education defined by Board Rule does not include a web-based, satellite transmitted or on-line instruction program that allows or requires the licensee to interact or communicate back and forth with the instructor during the presentation of the program. Home Study education is independent study and requires a certificate of completion. No more than 12 hours of home study courses are allowed.  NOTE: Home Study hours are not required, only “limited” to 12 hours. See Rule 64B11-5.001(4).
