Important Updates to K.A.R. 66-8-3 and K.A.R. 66-14-1

K.A.R. 66-14-1 now requires that 24 of the required 30 CEUS be related to health, safety, property and welfare (HSPW). Licensees may not obtain more than 10 CEUS in any 24-hour period. Five self-study CEUS are allowed with proof of course completion.  Kansas rules and regulations must be met to satisfy the continuing education requirement.
