Below is information about the Vermont Continuing Education Program

Effective June 1, 2009, all continuing education rosters will be entered electronically by continuing education providers into the Department’s Sircon database (Note: Providers are still required to provide course completion certificates to course attendees). Direct reporting by providers will enable producers real-time access to all credits that have been reported by a provider. Providers will be charged a $1.50 per credit hour for all continuing education submissions.

If your credits have not been posted within 30 days of your course completion date, you should contact the CE Provider to inquire about the posting of your credits.

Remember: DO NOT DISCARD YOUR COURSE COMPLETION CERTIFICATES.

A course completion certificate is your proof of completion of the required courses. A provider is required to provide a completion certificate within 20 days of the course completion date. It is your responsibility to acquire, keep and safeguard them for the current and preceding review periods. The information provided on this website regarding CE credits does not take the place of the Course Completion Certificates. The Department may at any time request your course completion certificates to verify your attendance and successful completion of approved CE courses.
