CBA: CONTINUING EDUCATION EXTENSION (April 14, 2021)
On March 30, 2021, the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) issued a new continuing education (CE) extension waiver for licenses that expire between March 31, 2020, and May 31, 2021. Licensees have until Sept. 30, 2021, to satisfy any waived CE requirements, unless the waiver is further extended.
The March 30, 2021, order rescinds the DCA’s previous three CE extension waivers issued in October 2020, December 2020 and February 2021. Licensees must still comply with other renewal requirements, including completing and submitting required renewal forms and paying renewal fees by their respective due dates.
Licensees impacted by the CE extension must comply with the 80 hour CE requirement in their next renewal cycle with the exception of the first year 20 hour requirement. Licensees may use CE credits earned during the waiver extension period to satisfy their current or next renewal cycles provided that the same CE credits are not used to satisfy both renewal cycles.
Continue monitoring the CBA’s website for developments and contact the CBA directly with any requests for accommodation.
