Approved Provider Application Process

To apply to be an approved continuing education provider, submit an application. There is no application fee. Applicants can apply twice within a year.

Please organize the information as specified in the application example. NOTE: Submit all application materials in triplicate hard copy. Emailed copies are not acceptable.

Fill out the Provider Application with Policy Examples.

A committee will review completed applications within 60 days. After review, the board will send a letter detailing any additions and/or revisions. The committee allows applicants two reviews OR one year to meet provider criteria. If denied, there is a one-year waiting period before reapplying.

If approved, the provider status lasts for five years. The board sends re-approval applications six months before the expiration date.
