Annual Registration Fee: $275
This fee is due every year (and is based on the calendar year) at the time your first Program Approval Form is submitted. Payment must be submitted with the CE Provider Annual Registration Form.
CE Provider Course Fee (billed twice yearly)
The CE provider course fee is based on a per course fee (see link below). CE providers will be billed twice a year (July and January) based on the number of courses approved/offered during the six-month period--January 1 to June 30 and July 1 to December 31, respectively.
A course is defined as an approved specific offering, on a specific date, at a specific location. Example: If an approval form was submitted for various dates and locations, each course offering will be counted individually. Ongoing online/text courses will be counted based on the number of program report forms submitted. An approved course that is canceled and/or not offered for any reason will still count as an offering. Click on the year for current CE provider fees.
