Educational Credit: 30 Contact Hours
How it Works
Each monograph will be 16 to 28 pages in length and will require 4 to 6 hours to complete. Course registrants receive all monographs together along with a final exam, answer sheet, and registration form for continuing education units. Exams will consist of multiple-choice questions, based on the material in the monographs. Registrants must complete the exam and return the forms within 3 months after the course retires (see the “available through” date). The Section will award a certificate of completion to those who score 70% or higher on the exam. PLEASE NOTE: Participants are urged to check with their State Licensure Board to see if the courses count towards continuing education credits.
