A CE course is effective until the provider's next master course expiry date, unless cancelled. All the provider's active courses have the same expiry date.
Sixty days before the provider's course(s) will expire, a renewal notice will be sent to the provider's registered email address.
- The provider's request to renew courses must be completed online. Submit the online Request CE Course Renewal form even if you do not intend to renew any active courses. New courses cannot be processed until the Request CE Course Renewal is processed.
- If the provider's courses are renewed, a course renewal summary notification will be emailed to the provider's registered email address.
- If a course is declined, the course renewal summary notification will provide a reason.
- If you do not receive the renewal summary, contact our office for a status before the course expiry date.
Courses may be renewed if the course outline has not changed, the course meets current standards and the course has not been renewed four times since the original approval date..
If a course renewal request is declined, the provider can update the course and reapply by submitting a new course-application (PDF, 224.03 KB).
The renewal request must be received by the OIC before the courses expire. There is a 30-day late renewal period, but a course cannot be offered until it is renewed.
A CE provider's authority remains active for one year after their last CE course expires. If a CE provider's authority has become inactive, it can be activated again by submitting a provider-application form (PDF, 137.88 KB) with a course-application form (PDF, 224.03 KB). A provider will not be approved until their first course is approved.
