February 1, 2023 TSBDE Committee Meetings (Details TBA)
February 2, 2023 TSBDE Board Meeting (Details TBA)
In 2020, the TSBDE voted to allow licensees to obtain continuing education (CE) through online or live (interactive) webinars. Live webinar courses count as CE hours achieved in a classroom setting and not as self-study hours. For a webinar course to count toward the required 16 technical and scientific hours for license renewal, the course must allow participants the opportunity to interact in real time with the speaker. Additionally, the course completion documentation must reflect that the class was an “interactive” webinar. Non-live webinar courses and online CE courses can be used as the 8 CE hours allowed for self-study.
