Continuing Education Information
The following registrants are exempt from continuing education requirements:
Be aware that OSDH does not track any continuing education submitted for exempt registrants.
The CE due date for each individual RPS/RPES is calculated based on the date you were first fully registered, two (2) years from initial expire date and every two (2) years thereafter. (For example, a RPS/RPES first fully registered on October 8, 2014 would not owe any continuing education until December 31, 2016 and then December 31, 2018, and so forth.) If you are not certain of your CE due date, please contact OSDH or check your most recent renewal form.
Submitting Continuing Education
All CE documentation should include the following:
All submitted courses or conference must be relevant to at least one (1) item on the Duty Task List to be eligible for RPS/RPES continuing education. (Formal Advisory Council approval is not required for individual courses or conferences, but may be done upon request by contacting OSDH.)
Continuing education must be completed in the 2-year period immediately prior to your CEU due date. Continuing education completed before that point is not eligible and will not be counted in the total hours indicated on your renewal form.
Oklahoma Registrants Registered Out-of-State
Every year in mid-November, current RPS/RPES registrants should receive a renewal notification via email with their continuing education total on it. If you have not received this renewal by the first week in December, please contact OSDH.
Where to Obtain Continuing Education
OSDH does not maintain a comprehensive list of all eligible courses and conferences, as any training relevant to an item on the Duty Task List and within the registrant’s most current CEU cycle may be eligible to be counted towards the 12-hour biennial requirement.
A number of eligible online courses are available through:
Other courses or conferences may be available through local educational institutions or employers.
NOTE: OSDH is not affiliated with any continuing education providers. Therefore, all continuing education documentation must be submitted directly to OSDH to be counted towards your 12-hour requirement.
