CEU Information for the Public Health Pest Control (PHPC) License
Continuing Education: In order to maintain a valid license in compliance with Chapter 5E-13, F.A.C., license holders must obtain continuing education in public health category. Qualifying workshops, approved by the Department, will award Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to attendees. PHPC license holders must earn total of 16 CEUs to renew. A minimum of 12 CEUs in the category of Public Health and a maximum of 4 CEUs in the category of Core during their 4 year license period.
At the end of each approved workshop (or workshop session), a Record of Attendance form will be signed by the approved trainer and handed out to PHPC license holders. License holders should make a copy of this form for their records and submit the signed original to the BEPC Mosquito Control Section immediately. License holders are responsible for keeping track of their CEUs (and all other responsibilities under Chapter 5E-13, F.A.C). CEUs will not be recorded for attendees who have not submitted such a form. CEUs will also not be recorded for training taken prior to license issuance.
License Renewal: A renewal PHPC license will be sent automatically to license holders who have completed and submitted at least 16 CEUs during their 4 year license period. Failure to meet the CEU requirements will result in a 90 day temporary expiration grace period. If he CEU requirements have not been met during the grace period, the license will permanently expire. Individuals will be required to retake both examinations and reapply for a new license. Please note our office may not necessarily send a reminder to those license holders who have not earned enough CEUs.
