Sustainability- Conservation is good business


We are now offsetting electricity consumption for the Jacksonville, FL headquarters, servers and satellite offices with Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). These certificates offset our consumption and add clean energy to the “grid.” By doing this, we are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution; strengthening America’s energy independence and diversity; creating jobs in rural areas; and promoting sources of unlimited, emissions-free domestic energy.

The plan is to continue to expand our efforts and begin to offset our carbon output by 2016. Our hope is that more organizations in the healthcare industry will follow suit and help put environmental sustainability first!  

“At CE Broker, we place people and the planet first. We must take care of the great resources we have been given, leaving the planet in a better place than we found it. That’s why I have decided that developing and maintaining sustainable business practices will be our most important goal for 2015,” says CEO Brian Solano.

Other ways CE Broker is going green:

Local food delivery  – We’ve partnered with a local produce company for Jacksonville office employees to purchase organic, healthy food to be delivered to them in office.

Remote collaboration – By using technology to stay connected, we reduce consumption of gas for travel.

Earth Day – We plant a tree for each subscription sold on Earth Day.

Eco-Pass – Employees at our Boulder, CO office use the Eco-Pass to take public transportation and reduce our carbon footprint while commuting.

Staying Green – The services we have developed are taking the licensing industry into an entirely paperless environment.

Beach Cleanup – We like to keep Jacksonville Beach pristine and have an annual clean up day each summer.

And more – Our employees are wonderful and always looking f0r more ways to participate in other green volunteering opportunities.

Educational Providers Who Automatically Report to CE Broker

Florida healthcare professionals must now demonstrate proof of continuing education compliance in CE Broker in order to renew their licenses. With the implementation of Florida Department of Health’s Renewal Ready campaign, it is required that you create an account with CE Broker. By claiming your FREE Basic Account, you can help CE Broker help you simplify your renewal process.

Our services offer many tools for licensees to use in order to successfully renew. For example, the Course Search tool on can be used to find classes offered by Educational Providers that are approved by the Florida Department of Health. These providers listed in our Official Course Search tool are required to report course completions to CE Broker within 90 days. If you waited until the last minute to complete your courses and find that the Educational Provider has not reported your course in enough time for you to renew your license, you can always self-report. However, in order to self-report, you will need to create your account with CE Broker! When you take a class offered on our website, there will be no more guessing whether your credits will count towards your license or not. (This does not mean that CE Broker offers the courses, we are just the tracking system that hosts a place for these courses to be listed).

The Reports to CE Broker Stamp

To make your decision easier on which course to take, we redesigned a digital stamp for Educational Providers to advertise on their website, social media pages, and other marketing collateral. As a  licensee, you can have peace of mind about the timeline your completed credits will be reported. There are two different stamps we are handing out to providers, depending on their average reporting time.

The “Automatically Reports to CE Broker Within 7-Days” Stamp will be given out to providers who report within 7 days and will look like this:

"Automatically Reports to CE Broker Within 7 Days" Badge.

“Automatically Reports to CE Broker Within 7 Days” Badge.

The “Automatically Reports CE to CE Broker” stamp is for providers who report to CE Broker within the required 90 day time frame mandated by the FDOH. That stamp looks like this:

"Automatically Reports to CE Broker Within 30 Days" Badge.

“Automatically Reports to CE Broker Within 90 Days” Badge.

Be aware of both stamps and make an informed decision when taking courses, to ensure they are reported within your desired time. We sent emails out to every Florida provider to have them display these stamps in a visible spot so licensees can easily identify them.

Verify An Educational Provider Yourself

You can also verify an Educational Provider right from our Course Search Tool if you find that to be easier! You can click on the link above to be redirected to the Course Search and click “Just need to verify an educational provider?” (the red arrow below shows where you can locate this option).

CE Broker Participates in Florida’s “Healthiest Weight” Program

CE Broker is happy to be participating in the Surgeon General's Healthiest Weight Initiative. Let's get healthy, Florida.

CE Broker is happy to be participating in the Surgeon General’s Healthiest Weight Initiative. Let’s get healthy, Florida.

Florida’s Surgeon General, Dr. John H. Armstrong, recently announced his new Healthiest Weight Initiative and we at CE Broker are trying to do our part to help out. Dr. Armstrong launched the program in January 2013 and has high hopes of involving the community in helping tackle the state’s number one health threat–weight. Currently, Florida’s obesity rate is at 36% and is rapidly rising with rates increasing to as high as 60% by 2030 unless things change. High obesity rates result in increased number of incidents of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and other metabolic disorders. Healthiest Weight Florida is structured for businesses, non-profits, state agencies and other organizations to join together to influence Florida’s adults and children to make the healthiest nutrition and lifestyle choices to reduce the obesity rate by 5% by 2017.

The Healthiest Weight Florida is divided into five different strategies to best address all aspects of health.

Strategy One-increasing the opportunity for physical activity: All CE Broker employees now receive a $30 subsidy to use towards any gym of their choosing.

Strategy Two-making health food available everywhere: CE Broker is partnering in a Community  Supported Agricultural share that will be delivered to the Jacksonville office once a week. Employees will have their choice of organic vegetables provided by Palmetto Organics

Palmetto Organics Community Supported Agricultural Share.

Palmetto Organics Community Supported Agricultural Share.

Strategy Three—Promote health in the worksite: A “Chief Fun Officer” has been chosen as leader of the office to find fun activities once a month for employee’s to participate in. Past activities have been a corporate 5K run, participating in “First Coast No More Homeless Pets” opportunity, having healthy community potlucks in the office, and many more activities to come.

CE Broker participates in the Corporate 5K. Team name-- Not Fast, Just Furious.

Strategy Four—Strengthen schools as the heart of health: CE Broker is currently looking for ways to actively participate in this strategy to be rounded in helping out in all five categories. If you have any opportunities or ideas for CE Broker to join, reach out to us in the comments below.

Strategy Five—Market what matters for a healthy life: We are dedicating a page of our new CE Broker website (under construction) to promote sustainable business practices.CE Broker is going to be giving back to make the planet a better place – more details coming soon!

We are proud supporters of the Surgeon General’s Initiative and hope you’ll help the state reach the health goals of a %5 decrease in obesity rates by 2017. We’d love to hear how your company is participating. Share with us in the comments below some great practices of healthy living that either you or your company are practicing.

If you are participating in Florida’s Healthiest Weight Program in any way, or if you have any success stories to share, tweet #HealthiestWeightFL!
