North Dakota requires twenty-four (24) continuing education hours every two years. Of those twenty-four hours, nine (9) hours can be by remote means. Remote is anything that is not presented in person in a physical location.

No hours can be carried into the next renewal period.




All continuing education courses need to be approved by the board. We accept most courses and course presenters approved by:




Other Professional Organizations

Other online sites - check with the board.



If a class you are interested in is not listed on any of the above websites and you think the class qualifies for continuing education, submit a request for approval here.






In order to make renewals run more efficiently and be more accurate, the board requests that you send in your certificates only at renewal time. Please send only copies of your certificates as we do not return them.
