Important information about Continuing Education Requirements:

  • In order to renew licensure, a surveyor must have 12 continuing education credits/hours by December 31. These must include a minimum of 3 credits/hours over the Act/Rules and/or Ethics.
  • Surveyors are required to maintain a record of their own continuing education. The Board no longer maintains a record of licensee continuing education.
  • After renewal, a minimum of five percent of the population will be audited and required to provide continuing education certificates.
