A practitioner must obtain four (4) continuing education hours in the area of professional ethics during each rolling 2-year period. Basically, the practitioner must obtain a four hour ethics course every other year. The board will be looking for ethics completion during the 2012/2013 two year period.
The continuing education requirement is defined as a rolling 2-year requirement and is calculated as 2011/2012, then 2012/2013, and so forth. An example would be, if you provided 30 hours in 2012, your requirement for 2013 will be 50 hours and the requirement for 2014 will be 30 hours. If the practitioner takes an ethics course in 2012, another ethics course will not be required until 2014.
The Board will not require a specific ethics course, and the course may be taken through live seminar or self/independent study. The following is a brief list of ethics courses that are offered.
