The Oct. 1, 2020 bulletin modifies bulletins issued on March 25, April 29, May 22, July 29, and Aug. 31 of this year and include:

  • Initial license applications are expected to take approximately two weeks for review.

  • Continuing education requirements have been changed to allow for courses approved as “Classroom,” to be offered as live webinars and CE providers can now offer those approved courses as live webinars. ALDOI said to do so, CE providers must first send a list of the courses they will offer as webinars, along with their webinar security information, to the ALDOI Licensing Division.
  • ALDOI has waived the examination proctoring requirement through Dec. 31, 2020 for the Self-Study CE courses.
