When you renew your license online before May 31st at midnight, 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 30 total hours required for Florida Registered Dietitians and Nutrition Counselors.
Your Hours– Broken Down:
28 General Hours are required every biennium. Remember that no more than 20 home study hours can be used per biennium and no more than 10 hours in risk management, personal growth, management and educational techniques per biennium.
You are also required to complete 2 hours of Medical Errors every biennium.
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. The transcript will automatically calculate your compliance so you know exactly where you stand before you renew your license. If something is required for completion that biennium, you will see it listed as required. Once you have completed those hours, it will display as fulfilled. If you have not completed those hours yet, you will see how many hours are still required for that section.
If you have a Basic Account, you will be able to see your Course History displaying all the courses you have completed and your compliance progress dial. To ensure you are ready for renewal, manually calculate compliance by comparing your Board’s requirements with the courses you have completed.
