Continuing Education:  Applicants applying for a Treatment credential must complete courses that are approved by the Board’s CEU approval process or another authorized entity. The education provider must reference the approval body on the CE certificates.  College or University courses may also be used to meet the education requirements but do not need to be pre-approved by the Board or another authorized entity. 

The CDCA PRELIMINARY is not renewable, if you choose to continue practicing you must submit a new application for the CDCA.  


Individuals selected as part of the audit process are required to compile and submit verification of the educational hours used for their renewal. Renewal audits are processed through the CE Broker system. If hours are shown as noncompliant,  individuals will then need to upload verification using their CE Broker account within a set amount of time for the audit. Information loaded into CE Broker will then be reviewed and approved by the Board if it meets the renewal requirements (OAC 4758-13). If approved, individuals will be issued a correspondence indicating that the audit was successfully completed. Individuals who cannot show completion of the required hours for renewal will receive a failed audit notice and will be referred to the Board for ethics violations.
