As of June 1, 2017, the NC Board for Licensing of Geologists has a continuing education requirement. 12 Professional Development Hours (PDH) are required in order to renew the individual license and must be achieved in the year prior to the year for which you are renewing. Example: for the 2018-19 license renewal, each individual must report 12 hours of CE completed during the period of July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018. The forms located in the Download Center on this page will be helpful resources to assist licensees in complying with the CE requirement.
There is a list of Pre-Approved Continuing Education Providers. If you attend an event sponsored by one of these entities that is geological in nature, you do not need to make application for approval. You simply need to retain some type of documentation of attendance, in case you are included in the random audit of CE.
Also included are the Instructions for Completing the CE Approval form, the Guidelines for CE, the CE Approval Form and the CE Reporting Form.
As time moves forward, activities will be approved by the Board and will be posted on this page. We expect to have online application for and reporting of CE for the 2018 license renewal.
If you have suggestions or questions, please feel free to contact the Board office.
