For a course to be considered for pre-licensing, postlicensing or continuing education approval, education providers must submit an application for course approval for each course. Instructors must also be approved. Applications for new courses MUST BE SUBMITTED AT LEAST 30 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THE COURSE DATE.
For classroom courses, providers may submit a flat fee of $75 per course for a three-year approval or a one-time approval fee of $15 per hour of continuing education credit. There is no fee or expiration for instructor approval. For distance learning (Internet) courses, the application fee is $150 per course for a three-year approval. If a course is ARELLO-certified, the application fee is $50.
It is the responsibility of the course provider, not the licensee, to report completion of continuing education to the SDREC office. Course providers must report completion information within 10 days.
