Continuing Education: This is a continuing education reporting year. Licensees will be asked to attest to completion of the required number of CE hours (30 hours for all LMFT licenses issued prior to January 1, 2014; a prorated number of hours for all LMFT licenses issued January 1, 2014 – November 30, 2015). Attestation will consist of reading a statement regarding CE completion and then checking a box acknowledging agreement with the statement.
Licensees who will not complete the required CE hours by time of license renewal MUST request an administrative variance from the Board seeking an extension of time to complete CE requirements. This request MUST be filed with the Board prior to renewing your license.
To request an extension, complete the form, “Request for 90-Day CE Extension,” (available on the “Forms” page of the Board’s website), and file it with the Board by US Mail, fax, or email. You will receive email acknowledgement of receipt and approval of the request. Licensees must then complete required CE hours within the extended time and file the required attestation document at time of completion.
Compliance with the CE requirements will be sampled by an audit of licensees. Licensees selected for the audit will be asked to provide documentation of completion of required hours of Board-approved continuing education. (Note: All CE hours must have a Board approval number provided either by the CE program sponsor, or provided directly to the licensee by the Board upon approval of application.)
Workforce Survey: The Board of Marriage and Family Therapy is partnering with the Office of Rural Health and Primary Care by participating in a statewide workforce survey and requesting the cooperation of all LMFTs. The survey will be part of the online or paper license renewal process and licensees will be asked to complete the survey when renewing their license.
