This is the first year that mandatory license renewal is in effect for you. What does that mean, you might ask yourself? Mandatory license renewal just means that you have to show proof of compliance with the Florida Department of Health at the time of renewal. If you are not 100% compliant, you will not be able to renew your license and will be redirected to CE Broker to report any missing hours. You don’t want any surprises when you renew your license, so continue reading to learn more about your CE requirements!

As a Florida Speech-Pathologist and Audiologist, you are required to complete 30 hours each biennium. Every biennium you must complete 18 hours of General Hours that are clinically related, 10 hours of General Hours that do not have to be clinically related and 2 hours of Medical Errors. If you are a Florida Speech-Language Pathologist and Audiologist Assistant, you must complete 18 hours of General Hours that are clinically related and 2 hours of Medical Errors.
