Continuing Education Verification

Continuing Education Verification

A total of 1,604 notices were mailed by the end of December 2015 which represents approximately 20 percent of the total number of Ohio permit holders renewing. The e-mail or postmark deadline for compliance with the 2013-2015 verification process was March 15, 2015. Most licensees are required to verify 120 credits for the three-year reporting period January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015. New licensees selected to verify continuing education credit need only verify 40 credits for the two-year reporting period January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015.

The continuing education report was used as a guide in summarizing continuing education credits.

NOTE: Persons selected for CPE verification who cannot verify 120 credits are required to complete additional verified credits.  A late filing fee is due for these additional credits, calculated as of the date the 120th credit is earned.  

Licensees who have not complied with the verification requirements are subject to a hearing before the Board.
