Step I: Application review​ - Completed applications are reviewed approximately six weeks before a board meeting.

Step II: Board review - The board will take a final action on the application.

Step III: Notification - ​The division will notify the applicant of the Board's decision.

The date that the board will review an application depends on the date the application is received. Review the following guide to plan your submittal.

Important submission dates

If received by the submittal deadline, your applications will go before the appropriate board on the corresponding board meeting date.​​​​

Providers must document course completion and give proof to each attendee.

For multi-part courses, instructors must provide the names of individuals only after they have completed all parts of the course, unless parts or a combination of parts are approved separately.

A civil penalty may be issued or other action taken, including revocation of approval of a continuing education course or instructor, for failure to meet the requirements.

​You must provide one of the following for web-based content:

  • A link to the online course content with login information (if content is secured); or

Continuing education course flexibility

Given the concerns about in-person courses during social distancing, we wanted to share an existing tool that allows approved CE courses to be taught online. If you have been approved to provide a course in-person you may provide that course via video conferencing or other online platform without re-applying. The course being taught online must contain the same content as the approved in-person course, follow the same time estimates as the in-person course, and be taught by an approved instructor. CPR classes require in-person training and cannot be taught online.
