General vs. Diagnostic Hours

Board Rules require licensees to obtain 16 clock hours of continuing education credit, with a minimum of twelve (12) hours in diagnostic/therapeutic education.

When submitting courses for approval, sponsors should designate the category for which the hours are being submitted: “general” or “diagnostic/therapeutic.” Once the courses are approved, the courses are posted on this website.
