Continuing Education: Applicants applying for a Treatment credential must complete courses that are approved by the Board’s CEU approval process or another authorized entity. College or University courses may also be used to meet the education requirements but do not need to be pre-approved by the Board or another authorized entity.
The Board randomly audits 10% of all renewal applications received. Audit notices are typically mailed three months after a completed renewal period. Since the audit process is random, individuals may be selected for audit multiple times. Individuals who successfully log all continuing education requirements for renewal into a CE Broker account will not be selected for audit! The Board will audit 10% of the individuals who do not pre-load their continuing education into CE Broker.

RENEWAL AUDIT COMPLIANCE
Individuals selected as part of the random audit process are required to compile and submit verification of the educational hours used for their renewal. Renewal audits are processed through the CE Broker system. When an audit request is received individuals will log their completed continuing education (CE) courses and upload verification using their CE Broker account. Acceptable verification of CE may include copies of certificates of attendance and/or college transcripts. Letters of completion from the CE provider may be accepted if the letter includes the title, date and hours of the training completed.
Once this information is loaded into CE Broker it will be reviewed and approved by the Board. If approved, individuals will be issued a correspondence indicating that the audit was successfully completed. Individuals who cannot show completion of the required hours for renewal will receive a failed audit notice and will be referred to the Board for ethics violations.
