Pre-Approval and Credit Evaluation Requests

MSU responds to impact of COVID-19

Due to the significant disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are temporarily reducing the number of continuing education credits required for recertification to 14 credits. This reduction applies to recertifications that are due in December 2022.

It is not necessary to submit programs for credit evaluation and they need not be pre-approved to earn recertification credit. In order to earn recertification credits, programs must be business-related. To calculate the number of credits a program will earn, simply total the number of instructional hours. Do not count meals, breaks, vendor exhibit sessions, tours, and other non-instructional activities.

Individuals and/or companies may submit programs for pre-approval. Companies may submit programs for pre-approval to cover multiple employees seeking credit for a program.
