CME Requirements for Other States

To the best of our knowledge this information is correct. To verify accuracy of the information please contact your state for the latest acceptance information.

All states differ in how Continuing Education may be obtained, please call your Training Officer or State Agency to verify accuracy. Acceptance of continuing education requirements are subject to change and we do not assume any liability for courses taken that are not accepted by your regulatory agency.

Below are a few key questions to ask your State Office or Training Officer when verifying Continuing Education acceptance:

  1. Does your state accept continuing education courses that are online?
  2. Does your state accept self-study or distance learning continuing education?
  3. Does your Training Officer have to approve your Continuing Education?
  4. Is CECBEMS accreditation required in order to receive credits for online edcuation?
  5. If the Continuing Education is coming from a reliable source, such as a major university, will that Continuing Education be accepted?
