Education-related update from the Department of State (DOS)

The DOS has asked us to remind members about the proper way to answer the continuing education question on the online license renewal form. The question asks if the licensee has completed the required CE credit or if the licensee is exempt. If the licensee has properly completed their CE requirements OR is exempt from completing CE, the licensee should answer “YES.” Many of those who are exempt, mistakenly answer “NO” and therefore an audit is immediately triggered. Unfortunately, licensees are often found to have gaps in licensure or are unable to prove continuous licensure, and thus lose their exemption from required CE.
