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 2017/2018 two year period.
The continuing education requirement is defined as a rolling 2-year requirement and is calculated as 2016/2017, then 2017/2018, and so forth. An example would be, if you provided 30 hours in 2017, your requirement for 2018 will be 50 hours and the requirement for 2019 will be 30 hours. If the practitioner takes an ethics course in 2017, another ethics course will not be required until 2019.
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.
