A recent change to the Wisconsin Administrative Code has modified the Continuing Education (CE) requirement for professions regulated by the Hearing and Speech Examining Board. The change, which took effect September 1, 2011, will require the following licensees to obtain two (2) hours of CE in Ethics as part of their overall biennial requirement of 20 CE hours.
Licensees must meet the new CE requirement prior to their next license renewal in January 2013. Please note that the overall number of required CE hours has not changed. The new requirement simply states that two (2) of the 20 hours of CE must be in Ethics. The remaining CE hours may be obtained from any other course approved by the Hearing and Speech Examining Board.
