The Montana Department of Labor and Industry's Montana Board of Behavioral Health HAS REVISED ITS REQUIREMENTS FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION. Licensees NO LONGER MUST SUBMIT REQUESTS and FEES for a course to be acceptable for continuing education. The Board does not pre-approve CE Providers or CE Courses. The licensee is expected to ensure that the courses they take apply to the scope of practice described in Board Rules. All the courses offered on the CEU By Net website DO COMPLY with this expectation. The following is posted on the Board's website at this webpage:
The following text appears on the Montana Board of Behavioral Health's website as of May 2021:
CE News - Stop filling out CE course approval request forms and sending in payment for course approval immediately!
The board updated its continuing education rules for all license types. Those changes are effective as of 3/30/19. See MAR 24-219-32 on the Rules Notices page for more information.
The number of CE hours required for each license type have not changed.
However, the board no longer pre-approves any courses or sponsors. Each licensee is responsible for taking courses which directly relate to the scopes of practice as defined in board statute.
Licensees are responsible for selecting quality programs that contribute to their knowledge and competence.
Licensees must maintain documentation of completed CE for three years which shows: licensee name; course title and content description; presenter or sponsor; course date(s); and number of CE hours earned.
Licensees only need to submit the above documentation as proof of CE if they are selected for a random CE audit. Licensees will be notified if they are selected for a random CE audit.
