New York Office of the Professions Extends Distance Learning

New York Office of the Professions Extends Distance Learning

The New York State Education (NYSED) Office of the Professions has extended the window for earning CE credit hours via distance learning ("self-study" in NYSED OP's parlance). Normally, New York licensees are restricted to 12 credit hours distance learning out of the 36 required per renewal cycle. From now until January 1, 2023 NYSED licensees can earn 100% of required credit hours with CE-Credit.com!

From the NYSED OP website (revised 6/30/22):

Some regulations restrict licensees to a certain percentage of self-study for continuing education requirements. In response to the evolving situation with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and for those licensees whose registrations are due to renew March 1, 2020 – January 1, 2023, the Department will grant an adjustment to all licensees to complete up to 100% of the continuing education as self-study, provided that it is taken from a Department-approved provider and is in an acceptable subject area for the specific profession.

Additionally, the Department will grant an adjustment to all licensees, regardless of registration renewal date, to utilize self-study for any coursework taken during the period from March 1, 2020 – January 1, 2023, provided that it is taken from a Department-approved provider and is in an acceptable subject area for the specific profession. Coursework taken outside that timeframe must meet the continuing education requirements in each individual profession’s laws and regulations.
