How many Professional Development Hours (PDHs) are required?

Courtney Wallace -

New registrants seeking renewal for the first time after initial registration must obtain 12 PDHs of continuing education during the two (2) years immediately following initial registration, seven (7) of which must address health, safety and welfare issues and technical competency.

Registrants seeking renewal for each two-year period thereafter must obtain 24 PDHs of continuing education, 13 of which must address health, safety and welfare issues and technical competency.  Carryover hours, not exceeding 12 PDHs, from the preceding renewal period may be included.

The Board does not pre-approve continuing education courses or providers. It is the registrant’s responsibility to determine which activities meet the criteria of the continuing education rules. Also, please do not send continuing education documentation unless the Board notifies you that you have been selected for audit.
