Waiver Information for Continuing Education Requirements: All Licensees

On March 30, 2020 Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-39-20, authorizing the Director of the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) to waive any of the professional licensing requirements relating to healing arts licensees in Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code, and any accompanying regulations. This includes, but is not limited to, the examination, education, experience, and training requirements necessary to obtain and maintain licensure, and requirements governing the practice and permissible activities for licensees.
 
The Department of Consumer Affairs has issued several waivers to assist licensees in meeting their continuing education requirements for their license renewals.  Licensees MUST still renew their licenses in their expiration month, failure to do so will render the license expired and will go into forfeiture status if not renewed within 60 days following the expiration date of the license.
