Minimum of 9 CE credits must be INTERACTIVE. To be accepted, the following criteria must be met:

  • The instruction must occur in real time (live in person or via online live stream).
  • There is required interaction between the licensee and the instructor.

This can include in-person conferences, interactive conferences, webinars or online workshops as long as they meet requirements above.

Maximum of 6 can be NON-INTERACTIVE.
