Continuing Education Non-Compliance
If you do not complete your continuing education hours by the end of your compliance period, you will be assessed a $250 fine and you will be required to complete your remaining continuing education hours. You will first receive a Preliminary Notice of Non-Compliance and a Settlement Stipulation in your MyProfile account approximately 45 days following the end of your compliance period. The Settlement Stipulation must be signed and returned to the department, otherwise all of your appointments will be cancelled. Once the department receives your signed Settlement Stipulation, a Consent Order with an invoice will be added to your MyProfile account. The invoice must be returned to the department at the address listed on it within 30 days after it is issued along with the $250 fine. You will have 120 days to complete your deficient continuing education hours.
