    In Illinois, you need 20 CEU’s to renew.


    how many needed in the state of california?


    This is why God made google:

    CE Renewal Requirements – How many hours of continuing education (CE) must I have to renew my license?

    Licensees must complete 30 contact hours of Continuing Education every two years in order to renew their license with an active status.

    The 30 hour CE requirement does not apply to the first license renewal following the initial issuance of a license. However, if the license has been delinquent for more than one complete renewal cycle (i.e., more than 24 months) then CE is required.

    Licensees are required by law to retain the original copies of their CE Certificates for a period of 4 years and if audited, they must furnish the Board copies of all relevant documents.

    The following courses are acceptable for continuing education:
