CPE is measured by the calendar year and must be reported annually by January 31 of the following year.
Requests for an Extension of time to complete the previous year's CPE Requirement must be submitted by January 31 of the current calendar year. Unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances, no Extension Requests will be granted past June 15 -- allowing sufficient time for the licensee to renew the license to practice before the June 30 renewal deadline. The Extension Request fee is $75.00.
Extension Requests submitted after the January 31 filing date must be accompanied by the $150 late filing fee. (Totaling $225.00)
