The rules that describe continuing competence activities (Article 4 in the board’s administrative rules, A.A.C. R4-24-401–R4-24-303) establish 3 categories of activities that can fulfill the requirement for license renewal, which is 20 hours during each 2 year compliance period. A compliance period begins on September 1st of even-numbered years and ends on August 31st of the following even-numbered year. At least 10 contact hours must be from Category A, up to the entire 20 contact hour requirement. No more than 10 hours may be utilized from a combination of Category B and/or Category C activities. Because of the variety of conversions used to determine CEU’s by different organizations, the rules require “contact hours” rather than “CEUs” as the measurement of continuing competence activities.
