Attention California Health and Mental Health Professionals:
Due to the Governor’s Executive Order N-39-20, there have been changes to licensing requirements. For those licensed by a board under the California Department of Consumer Affairs, the Director will temporarily waive continuing education requirements for licenses due to expire between March 31, 2020, and September 30, 2021. These temporary waivers do not relieve such individuals from timely complying with any other renewal requirements, including completing and submitting the required renewal forms to the governing licensing agency. Additionally, continuing education and any associated fees for those seeking to reactivate or restore a license will be temporarily waived. Licensees must satisfy any waived renewal requirements within six months of this order, unless further extended, and activated or restored licenses pursuant to this waiver will be valid for six months, or until the State of Emergency is terminated, whichever is sooner. For more information, please visit

CNAs are required 48 hours every biennial licensing period, 24 of which may be completed online through an approved provider.*

*NetCE is an approved online provider.
