Continuing Education and Audit Information

Continuing Education Requirement

To maintain your Controlled Substance registration, you must complete 2 hours of Continuing Education(CE) during each full licensure renewal period between July 1 and June 30 of the previous odd-numbered years (2019, 2021, etc.).  The following are deemed acceptable CE areas:

  • controlled substance prescribing practices,
  • treatment of chronic pain, or
  • other topics related to the prescribing of controlled substances

If you complete at least two hours of CE in the above specific areas in connection with your practitioner license, you may use the same CE to satisfy the two-hour requirement for your controlled substance registration.

For complete information on the CE requirements, see Section 3.1.3 of the Committee’s Rules and Regulations.
