Continuing education courses are divided into three categories based on the method of delivery — classroom, distance learning or independent study. These delivery methods are defined as follows:
Classroom — The instructor providing the course material is located physically in the same location as the student.
Distance Learning — The instructor and student are in physically separate locations, and instructional methods include interactive video-based instruction, computer conferencing, interactive audio, interactive computer software, and Internet-based instruction. An example of this type of delivery method is an Internet course.
Independent Study — No interaction with an instructor is planned or implied as part of the learning process. An example of this type of delivery method is a VHS/DVD video or printed material such as books. No more than six hours of independent study courses may be used for continuing education requirements during a renewal period.
It is the responsibility of the course provider, not the licensee, to report completion of continuing education to the SDREC office. Licensees will receive a certificate of completion from the course sponsor. Do not send this certificate in to the SDREC office; licensees should keep these certificates for their records.
