    General Requirements
    Every landscape architect must complete a minimum of twenty-four contact hours of continuing education prior to the end of each renewal period.

    Effective with the renewal period beginning November 1, 2009, sixteen of the twenty-four hours must be health, safety and welfare hours (HSW).

    The completion of these hours is a condition of renewal of the landscape architect's registration.

    An application for renewal or restoration of a license may not be submitted unless the continuing education requirement has been completely fulfilled or the registrant has been exempted from the continuing education requirement by the Board.

    If the registrant exceeds the total number of required hours in any renewal period, a maximum of twelve hours may be carried forward into the next renewal period.

    Contact hour
    A contact hour is at least fifty minutes of participation in an approved course or activity.
