How to Request Continuing Education(CE) Course Approval

If you know or have any doubt that a CE course that you have taken or want to take is not approved by the Board, you should request to have the course reviewed and approved by the Board. You must use the DELPROS online portal to request approval of the CE course(s) through a Service Request. For more information on how to submit courses for approval or many other types of service requests for this profession, see the Geologist Service Request webpage.

Note: Section 6.11 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations state that only courses from providers not listed in Section 6.10, must be approved by the Board. If the course you took or want to take is already pre-approved, you do not have to submit a service request for course approval.


Continuing Education Requirement

The amount of CE that you are required to complete depends on when your license was issued. If you have been licensed:

  • less than one year – you are not required to do CE
  • more than one year, but less than two years – you are required to complete 12 hours of approved CE

Active Geologist’s must complete 24 hours of approved CE during each full licensure renewal period between October 1 and September 30 even-numbered years (2018-2020, etc.). For complete information on the CE requirements, see Section 6.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.
