How many CEUs does Arizona require?

Arizona requires 20 CEUs completed within the last 2 years. You are required to 1) submit your CEUs as part of the renewal application and, 2) keep and maintain CEU documentation for five (5) years. The Board shall accept no more than 15 CEUs during an initial licensure period or a two-year licensure period for courses or activities a licensee completed online, except for live courses or activities a licensee completed online. At least 2 ethics courses must be completed per renewal. Arizona has very specific requirements for what can be considered a live course. Our Interactive Webinars (Real-Time Live Broadcast courses) are accepted by Arizona as live. Our recorded with live credit courses (CEUs > Live) DO NOT satisfy “live” requirements in Arizona.

Are your courses approved by both the AARC and the ASBRCE?

Our courses are approved by the AARC and accepted by the ASBRCE.

How much does my renewal cost?

License renewal in Arizona is $150 paper or $153 online. Initial application fees are $120 plus a $100 app fee and $50 fingerprint fee.
