“My continuing education hours are not posted!”
It is incredibly frustrating when you purchase a continuing education course, complete it, and fail to see your hours posted to your DBPR license account once you try to renew.
Our job at FloridaCosmetologist.com is to make sure your completed continuing education hours are reported to the DBPR. And we like to have them reported quickly so you can renew your license as soon as possible, especially near the renewal deadline.
Florida rules require that approved continuing education providers electronically report completed hours within a certain time period. Normally it is 30 days, but it goes down to 10 days the month of the renewal, and by the 5th of the month after completion in some cases. Here is the Rule if you care to read it- 61G5-32.001 Continuing Education. (e)
And the application to become a cosmetology board continuing education provider states the below:
Providers must work with licensees to resolve reporting conflicts.
And that is why we are here today- to work with you to resolve this issue. We all make mistakes. While there are times where we do not get hours reported on our end, we often see the errors on the licensee’s end.
If your completed continuing education hours are not posted to your DBPR license account, here are some of the top reasons we see here at FloridaCosmetologist.com. Let’s troubleshoot!
