OWTS Professional Licensing Continuing Education Opportunities

Upon renewal of a Designers license, the applicant must demonstrate satisfactory completion of a minimum of 4 continuing education units (CEUs) of appropriate professional development per year since the applicant's license was issued or renewed. Credits will be award as 1 CEU per 2 hours of class. Courses no longer need to be preapproved by RIDEM and 100% of the courses may be taken online. Classes will be accepted pending they are relevant to the applicant’s line of work to help further their career. The Self Reporting Form shown below must be submitted along with the renewal application.

Per the new Regulations incorporated on December 28th, 2021, Class-III Designers who hold a current PE license no longer need to submit CEUs with their renewal form. Also, designers who have held an individual license in good standing for a minimum of 12 consecutive years will be exempt from submitting CEUs.
