The fiduciary continuing education policies have also changed. These new changes will be in effect for the 2024-2026 renewal cycle. Please review the below listed Code provisions in detail to become familiarized with these changes.

The continuing education requirements do not apply to fiduciary entities. Of the 10 hours of continuing education each year, at least 1.5 hours each year must be devoted to ethics as provided in subsection (L)(4)(b)(11). Hours used to satisfy the ethics requirement may not also count against the remaining 7.5 hours of each year’s required continuing education hours. Excess continuing education hours completed in a year are not transferable to any year other than the one in which they were completed.
