- CE Requirement: Twenty-four (24) CHs (Contact Hours), all of which must address health, safety and welfare issues (HSW).
- CE Cycle: Two-year period from running from January 1 of even-numbered years through December 31 of the following odd-numbered year (e.g. January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2011 then January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013).
- Acceptable Coursework: The New Mexico Board does NOT pre-approve courses or providers. It is the registrant's responsibility to use his/her professional judgment to determine if an activity meets the Board's criteria as summarized in this post and - most importantly - as detailed on Board's website (see "Source" at the end of this post for weblink).
- Reporting of Credits: Providers CANNOT report continuing education credits earned to the New Mexico Board. However, registrants - as part of the renewal process - MUST turn in the continuing education report form attesting to the fulfillment of all continuing education requirements.
- Tracking of Credits: Registrants are responsible for maintaining proof of successful completion of continuing education activities. Did you know? Design Arts Seminars keeps track of the courses you take with us and provides you with online access to your transcript saving you both time and money, especially in case of audit.
- Audit: A random sample of registrants will be selected for an in-depth audit to verify compliance with continuing education requirements.
