Each 20-hr CE Renewal package is equally designed to meet the 20-hr renewal requirement. Each includes the mandatory Core A and B courses (until 5/31/21) and 14 hrs of electives.
About Core courses: The State expires the Core A and B courses at the end of May in odd-numbered years. Once the State expires the Core courses, licensees will take electives in their place until the next Core courses come out in the even-numbered year. Every biennium, Core A and B are always based on legislation sessions / law updates. The new Core are only released by the State once its respective legislation sessions take place.
It is the solely the licensees' responsibility to confirm with the licensing branch (DCCA) ahead of purchase to ensure courses purchased at REMI will meet your CE requirements.

The 3 checkmarks correspond to the completion of the presentation, survey, and indicating the biennium where you would like the course credit applied.
