|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting on January 20, 2012, the Board considered the petition and decided to deny your request to initiate the rule-making process based on the current regulations which do not specify the delivery method for Category 1 continuing education. Provided the "formally organized learning activity” (workshops, seminars, conferences or courses) is offered and documented by one of the entities listed in regulation, it is acceptable for Category 1 continuing education. Those entities include universities or colleges, governmental agencies or school systems or professional organizations in the behavioral health field. The issue is not whether the seminar was delivered via the web or live, the issue is whether it was offered by one of the entities approved to offer Category 1 CE.
