You are in full swing to renew your license now! When you renew your license online before your February 28th renewal date, the Florida Department of Health will review your records in CE Broker. It will be required that all of your requirements be met and your hours are posted in order to renew successfully. So don’t wait until the last minute– complete and report your hours as you go so you don’t fall behind!
You can learn more about your renewal process at www.AreYouRenewalReady.com.
We want to give you a quick visual of all of your CE requirements so you don’t have any surprises when renewing your license. The following chart contains all of the 20 hours required for Florida Hearing Aid Specialists.
Your Hours– Broken Down:
Board Approved Providers:
- Courses approved by the International Hearing Society
- Board approved courses – listed in CEBroker
Other methods of receiving credit:
- 2 hours for attending a Board meeting
Helpful Information to keep in mind:
You may only receive continuing education credit for in-person contact hours. You can find approved courses in CE Broker’s Course Search by customizing your search to only include live/contact hours.
If you have a Professional or Concierge Account with CE Broker, you can see whether you have met the requirements listed above in your CE Compliance Transcript. If something is required for completion that biennium, you will see it listed as required. Once you have completed those hours, you will see that is fulfilled. If you have not completed those hours yet, you will see how many hours are still required for that section.
What If This Is My First Renewal?
According to the Florida Board of Hearing Aid Specialists:
“Hearing Aid Specialists initially licensed in the biennium are exempt from completing continuing education.”
