- Things to know about the new education requirements:
Renewals due on January 1, 2023 or after must comply with the new continuing education (CE) requirements of 1 hour of Cultural Competency and 2 hours of Elimination of Bias.
Applying before December 31, 2023 does not remove the requirement. Licensees must meet the new education requirements in order to receive the license.
Licensees who are on their Full CE Cycle are mandated to take the course.
Licensees who are on USPAP Cycle can take the course, but it is not mandated for that renewal cycle.
The 6 month notice indicates whether licensees have a USPAP renewal or Full-Renewal. It also indicates whether licensees need the class or not.
• Licensees still must obtain 56 hours of required CE within a 4-year cycle. At least 3 of those hours must be in Elimination of Bias and Cultural Competency, as stated above.
• Licensees must take the two courses or one combined course every four years. AQB requires courses to be a minimum of 2 hours to count for CE, so course providers are submitting combined courses to ensure full credit.
