On your respective renewal application, you will check only one of the boxes regarding your continuing education (“CE”) and proceed to complete the CE affidavit.
If this is your first time renewing (initial license issuance date was between 7/1/2018 and 6/30/2019), please check the box indicating that this is your first renewal, and therefore, no CE affidavit is required.
Please complete the continuing education ("CE") affidavit that pertains to your license classification. If you are not in compliance with your respective CE requirement, a written request, for an extension, must accompany your renewal application in lieu of the respective affidavit and must be received on or before June 30. Please follow the below DOs and DON'Ts of continuing education:
DO Review the Board's rules or your respective affidavit on your CE requirements;
DO Claim only the credit hours taken July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2019;
DO Enter the number of hours completed for each category on your affidavit. Please note: MOST categories have minimums, FEW, IF ANY, have maximums; and
DO Pay special attention to the self-study section of your affidavit and enter the number of self-study hours completed even if the number is zero (0). Self-study is defined in the Board's rules under AAC R4-11-1209 (page 22 of the link).
DON'T Claim more hours of self-study than allowed on your affidavit, which has already been tailored to the allowable limit;
DON'T Throw away your documentation of attendance. The Board's rules require that you maintain your documentation for the most recently completed renewal period; and
DON'T Wait until the last minute to request an extension for your CE requirements. Your extension request must be submitted along with your license renewal and must be postmarked on or before June 30.
