TDLR Waives CE Requirement for June Licensees
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) announced yesterday the waiver of continuing education (CE) requirements for all individual licenses has been extended to licenses expiring in June 2020. Previously the waiver of CE had been in place for March, April, and May licenses only.
 
If your license expires in June, you will still need to submit your renewal application, pay the required fees, and TDLR will check criminal history, but you will not need to complete any TDLR-required continuing education this licensing cycle. (§51.405, Occupations Code)
