Continuing Education Frequently Asked Questions

Documentation, attestation and audit

Documentation supporting compliance with CE requirements must be maintained by the certification holder for a period of four (4) years following certification renewal and be provided to the Health Licensing Office upon request. Each certification
holder shall document compliance with CE credit requirements through attestation on the certification renewal application. For current auditing ad sanction information, please see OAR 331-830-0020.

Pre-approval of CE courses discontinued

Because the Sexual Offense Treatment Board now lists continuing education (CE) domains (subjects) in Oregon Administrative Rule, the Health Licensing Office (HLO) is no longer offering the option of submitting CE pre-approval requests for review. As long as the course content being offered can be tied directly to one or more of the domains listed in rule, there is no need for approval from the HLO to offer the course. Please review the Oregon Administrative Rules that oversee the Sexual Offense Treatment Board for the list of acceptable domains.
