Post-Licensing Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a minimum of 70%. Students failing the end-of-course examination must wait at least 3 calendar days from the date of the original examination to retest. Within 90 days of the original examination, a student may retest a maximum of one time. Otherwise, students failing the end-of-course examination must repeat the course prior to being eligible to take the end-of-course examination again.

Course Completions: Students must participate in each course for the number of hours of credit awarded and daily course segments cannot exceed 12 hours. A 30-hour qualifying course cannot be started and completed in less than 3 days and starting and completing more than one qualifying course within the same 3 days is also not permitted.

Reporting: The state does not require schools to report qualifying course completions.  Students will submit their certificate of completion with their license application.

Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each individual course will have an expiration date listed in your account. 

Certificates: Once The CE Shop has received the signed affidavit, your certificate of course completion will become available to download (and via email).  The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic Certificate of Completion, upon completion of the course. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies. Please refer to your license application to determine if you need to submit your Certificate of Completion with your license request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your Certificate of Completion will reflect this.
