There has been some confusion with license renewals with the question about CE.
The question that is often answered wrong is:
Have you completed the required CE credit or are you exempt?
- If you have properly completed your CE requirements or are exempt from completing CE, you should answer “YES” to this question.
- A common mistake for those that are exempt is to answer “NO” and therefore an audit is immediately triggered.
When this happens, a licensee will have a hard time proving continuous licensure, and will lose his or her exemption from the required CE.
It is on the licensee to prove continuous licensure – the DOS does not maintain these records.
