Post Audit of Continuing Education

If selected for a continuing education audit you will be required to submit certificates of program or course completion or evidence of successful completion issued to you by the course sponsor. The documents must identify the course title, date(s), contact hours, sponsor and licensee's name. It is your responsibility to obtain this information from the program sponsor and retain it for two years after the applicable licensure period has ended regardless of where you obtained continuing education.
