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 CEBroker.com 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.

Reporting CE Has Never Been Easier.

How Do I Do It?

Reporting from your mobile phone is the same process as reporting on www.cebroker.com. Of course, if you take a course from an educational provider approved directly by the Board, they are required to report to CE Broker for you within 90 days. That completion will show up in your Course History and you will be notified as soon as it is recorded if you have a Professional or Concierge account.

Sometimes though you’ll have to report your hours yourself though, and it’s easier than ever with the iPhone app.

It takes just a few steps:

1. Open your iPhone App and click on the “Report CE” button at the bottom of your screen and follow the instructions as prompted.

Choose Report CE Tab at the bottom of the page.

2. Enter in the how many hours you completed and the date of completion for this course.

Enter Number of Hours Completed and Date of Completion.

3. Choose the correct Subject Area.

Select the Type of Credit You Completed

4. Fill out the name of the course and the name of the Educational Provider.

Attach Documentation or Maintain Your Own

5. Choose to “Attach Your Documentation” or choose to “Maintain Your Own Documentation.” To Attach your documentation, simply take a photo of your certificate of completion and attach to the posting. If you choose to maintain your own documentation, you will want to hold on to that certification of completion for up to 5 years as you could be audited and need to show proof.

CE Broker Working with National Board – Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition

Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition
Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition

CE Broker is proud to announce partnership with our first National Board- Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition (CBCN), who operates under the American Chiropractic Association. This is an exciting venture for CE Broker as the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition has licensees in every state, plus some international licensees. Our partnership will include CE Broker tracking CBCN member’s requirements for certification. This will benefit both the Board and its members by alerting them when any certifications are near expiration and need to be re-certified. All of this happens right from within the CBCN’s account with CE Broker. This means less work for everyone involved since we are now automatically tracking all credits and deadlines and automatically will notify if any certification actions need to take place. Partnering with CE Broker is a collaboration to ensure healthcare professionals are maintaining their compliance with the tools and benefits we can offer them together.

Apply to join the CBCN in their quest to advance the services that Chiropractors offer to the public in the clinical nutrition area.

If you are wanting to apply to be a member of this Board, there are a few guidelines that you must meet. These guidelines are provided on the CBCN website in the Eligibility Requirement tab, or you can click on the “guidelines” link shown above.

  1. First and foremost, you must hold a degree of Doctor of Chiropractic from a CCE accredited college.
  2. As an applicant, you must also show evidence that you have completed at least 300 credit hours towards a post doctoral program in nutrition. The evidence must come from an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (or from an agency that has a reciprocal agreement with the U.S. Department of Education).
  3. You must submit your application before the deadline. The application will include your Official transcript directly from the institution where your post doctoral nutrition education was completed and 2 written case histories from actual patient files in the format provided by the CBCN along with the required case history attestation.
