Agency Decision Summary

The petition was considered by the Board at its meeting on December 7, 2012.  Since the Board does not have the time and resources to properly evaluate each potential provider of continuing education, it has relied on those nationally-recognized organizations listed in Section 50 of its regulations.  If the petitioner's business offered courses under the auspices of one or more such organizations, the continuing education hours would be acceptable.  Therefore, the Board declined to initiate a rule-making process and voted to retain Section 50 as currently written.
