Even though I only need 6 CEU’s every 3 years in order to meet my continuing education requirements, I spent many more hours every year reading, participating in workshops or clinics and then practicing what I’ve learned and trying new things. There is always new information coming out every year that is impossible to keep up with it if I spend only a few hours a year on it.
There is always the basic amout of required CEC’s that must be met for A.C.E. In 2010, I logged 15 hours of official study. Then there is the reading, reviewing and studying that I completed on an unofficial level.
I do not keep official track of my unofficial study. I realize that as I discover new findings through research articles, attain new knowledge by attending seminars and presentations, I must be ready to incorporate those findings into my knowledge base.
I always keep constant, my search for knowledge and my efforts to improve. There are many resources available that can assist in the attaining of these goals.
