This Policy Statement replaces Policy Statement 2002-003, dated December 12, 2002.

Any licensee/certificate holder who has obtained a Massachusetts license/certification by reciprocity may complete the requisite continuing education of either Massachusetts or from the state in which reciprocity was granted. Licensees/certificate holders who do not hold a current license in the State where the continuing education was satisfied on the exact date of renewal will not get credit for the out-of-state continuing education. Therefore, in the case where the licensee of another State completes their State's continuing education requirement but chooses not to renew their State's license, they may not use the continuing education to renew their Massachusetts license.

Adopted December 15, 2011
