Continuing Education, Consider the "Cost of Ignorance"
Let’s face it, completing continuing education comes with a cost.
Whenever reminded of our CE requirement through a Department email, a correspondence from our compliance coordinator, or that little voice in our head, we tend to also be reminded of the time and money it will cost to take a class. Focusing on the cost alone can create temptation to procrastinate or just not "do it".
Let's be reminded the alternative to completing CE on time carries a cost too. That cost tends to be greater.
A former British government statistician and academic professional, Claus Moser, once said, "Education costs money, but then so does ignorance."
- Time calling the department about your situation

Are You Compliant with Your CE or Not?
To be CE compliant requires more than just taking CE courses. Below are a few suggestions for remaining CE compliant:
CE requirements change. You should regularly review your CE status through your Mi Perfil account. Your total hours have specific allocation requirements that must be met. Be sure to take all the right categories of CE courses.
Check for late hours. Hours taken after your due date will still post on your compliance evaluation screen, but they will be noted as "Late". Though your hours requirement may have been met, late completion of your continuing education requirement will result in penalties.
Check prior evaluation periods. Always check previous compliance periods to make sure you are not delinquent for a prior period. Be sure to click on VIEW ENFORCEMENT NOTICE just below the Not Compliant text to check for any outstanding fines.
