Licensees who are born in an even year will renew on even years, those born in an odd year will renew on odd years. No carry over credits are allowed and a student cannot take a course more than once in a 2-year license term. CE credits taken to complete a previous license term deficiency will not count for the current license cycle.
Students may take an approved course in any line of authority to obtain their Continuing Education credits, but it is recommended that they take courses pertaining to their license type.
