Online CE Policies For Georgia
I know there is a lot of confusion about the CE requirements in Georgia so here is the bottom line. As you know, GA requires 40 hours of CE every 2 years. During the last 2 year cycle (2019-2020) the GA Board lifted the restrictions for online learning. That meant that during that period, you were able to do all 40 hours online.
Recently, the Board reinstated the original rule for the next 2-year cycle (2021-2022). This means that during this next 2-year cycle, chiropractors can do 20 of the 40 hours online. For now, the other 20 hours must be done live.
So, the bottom line is this. You can do 20 hours online this year!! However, unless the Board lifts the restrictions again next year, you will need to do the remaining 20 hours live next year
Hope this helps!
