Schools are not required to report the hours to the department. It will be the licensee’s responsibility to retain evidence that demonstrates that he or she has met the continuing education requirements.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs does not allow a licensee to repeat a course for credit in the same 3 year renewal cycle, however they can in consecutive cycles. It is the licensees responsibility to make sure they do not purchase and complete duplicate courses.

You should renew your license on or before your expiration date to avoid penalties. If you have any questions regarding your continuing education, go to the commission website and click on "Check a License".
