Certified Individuals are required to complete 120 hours of continuing education hours (CEH). The hours may be averaged over a five (5) year period with no more than 45 hours during any one certification year period. To meet the CEH requirement, TPASS encourages certified individuals to obtain 24 hours of continuing education hours per certification year. CEH hours in excess of the 45 hour per certification year maximum will not be carried over and applied for credit in subsequent years.
In order to accommodate the overwhelming request for these classes, it is very important that you attend. If it is determined that you are not able to attend a class you have registered for, you must cancel your participation, substitute a class, or substitute a student through the same registration site you used to register. All cancellations or class substitutions must occur a minimum of five (5) days prior to the scheduled start date of the class. A student substitution must occur prior to the 1st day of the class.
