Continuing Professional Education Requirements for 2019-20
posted on 03/28/2020

Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and the resulting cancellation of the end of season championship competitions, the Women’s Technical Committee has voted to reduce the number of CPE credits required for the 2019-2020 season. We realize that many judges counted on volunteering at some of these events to complete their total number of CPE hours. The recent decision to re-schedule the National Congress may also prevent some officials to be compliant before the new season begins on August 1, 2020.

Therefore, please refer to the following chart indicating the change in the CPE requirements for the 2019-2020 accreditation year. Please be aware that anyone who has not fulfilled the new requirement by the end of May will still be required to submit their Annual Report Form to their State CPE Coordinator by May 31 and indicate any plans to attend any state/ regional or national education opportunities. Once they fulfill their total number of CPE hours and the number of Clinic hours according to their rating, they need to re-submit their Annual CPE Report so they can be considered for judging assignments after August 1, 2020.
