Renewal CE Audit FAQ

What is an AUDIT?
The Board monitors compliance with the CE requirement through an audit system.  If you receive a "Notice of Continuing Education Audit" during your online renewal you are  asked to send photocopies of your CE records to the Board along with the Notice of Continuing Education Audit Form. It is important that you send COPIES of the actual documents received upon completion of the education activities attended. Information received in the Board office in response to an audit of your continuing education records will not be returned to you. You should keep your original documents. 

How long should I keep my continuing education records?
Records must be kept for at least 4 years.

What records should I keep?
Documentation of completion of CE activities should be supplied to you by the provider of the activity. Upon audit, you will be required to send photocopies of documents that contain all of the following information:

  • Your name;
  • Title of the education activity or course;
  • Code or course number;
  • Date of program completion;
  • Name of the provider/instructor;
  • Name of the organization which approved the program for CE;
  • Contact hours or number of credits.

For academic credit, an official college transcript or grade report showing your name, the name of the school, the number of credits received, and the dates attended is also acceptable.
