One continuing education unit equates to one clock hour. Details of how these units break out are listed below. If an individual has two or more endorsements it will result in a minimum total requirement which exceeds seventy-five (75) continuing education units of professional growth. Participation in growth activities must be documented. Complete the Renewal Form indicating the date(s) of the activity, the number of units of the activity, and the title of activity for the required category areas A. and B. The form can be downloaded from the Department website. You may be contacted at a later date to provide verification of completion of these activities.

The categories are as follows:
