I will be taking a break from this forum until after the new year. Stay safe. Enjoy your family. Cook great food. Merry Christmas.
It’s that time of year. Time to get all my continuing education credits in order. I’ve got several licenses that are due by December 31. I’ve been keeping a file, so this should be simple. Well, maybe not stressful.
Let’s start with my home state of Kansas. I know I’ve got enough CEUs to renew my fumigation and general pest licensing. I checked with the Kansas Department of Ag. They sent me a letter saying so. The renewal is open: Done.
Oklahoma Department of Food & Forestry says I needed 2 fumigation credits. I did some digging and found that I had taken some online classes that counted for CEUs. They never got recorded. Email sent. Email received. Continuing education credits accounted for. Thank goodness. Please don’t make me take that test again.
Nebraska doesn’t require me to obtain CEUs because my licensing in that state is reciprocal to Kansas. My renewal for Kansas had to be processed first. A few emails later – State #3 – Completed!
I am new to Missouri and Texas for licensing renewals. I was certified in the middle of the cycle, and checked on the criteria. Both of these are reciprocal to Kansas, so no additional CEUs are needed. Whew!
My Associate Certified Entomologist certificate is due this December, too. Those fees and requirements are somewhat steeper. There is a Code of Ethics that goes with that. In order to renew my ACE, I had to make sure at least one of my state licensing certifications got approved first. I have sent in all of the paperwork. I am excited to see who signs my certificate this time.
I am in a webinar study group to get my Public Health Entomology certification. No continuing education credits are required to maintain this one. I am feeling positive about passing this exam. Most of the training information is similar to my ACE. I am planning on testing in February or March 2021. Fingers crossed 🤞
