CE Provider Information and Requirements

To provide consistency for our licensees and among the many continuing education providers, following is important information and Board requirements:

The first step to becoming a CE Provider for the NC Irrigation Contractors’ Licensing Board is to contact the Board’s Administrator to create an account for you.  Once the account is created you will be given a user name and password along with detailed instructions for submission of continuing education. The Continuing Education Advisory Committee (CEAC) meets every last Wednesday of the month except in November and December, at which time they meet the second or third Wednesday depending upon the holidays. Once they review the continuing education applications the CE Provider will receive an email notification as to whether the course has been approved, deferred or denied and comments to explain the decision if necessary. A very important part of the application process is to provide an outline, brochure, agenda or some other document that clearly describes what will be taught; the start and end time of each session and the start and end time for breaks and meals if applicable.

As a continuing education provider, you must attest that you will maintain attendance records for each of  the course(s) taught for two years after the date of the course, and provide each attendee with a proof of attendance (form provided by NCICLB). All attendance sheets must be signed by the licensee at the time of check out if it is an in person class. Anyone leaving a class early should not receive proof of attendance.

Licensees are required to earn ten (10) continuing education credits each year by December 31. Six (6) credits must be education with direct relation to the performance of irrigation and four (4) credits must be related to general business practices. This can include accounting, finance, business planning, human resources, the use of computers, etc.

  • 50 minutes of education equals 1 hour of credit.
  • Breaks during courses shall not be counted towards CEU credit.
  • Credit shall not be given to the licensee for courses repeated within a consecutive three year licensing period.
  • If providing an online or virtual class there must be a provision for making sure everyone that signs into the class, remains in attendance throughout the entire session. Depending upon how many individuals and how long the session lasts, you should include a short quiz in the middle and the end of the course or possibly take attendance.
  • It is extremely important that if you are providing more than one online/virtual event at the same time, that the licensee can not sign in to more than one class at a time.
  • No education should include the sales or promotion of a particular product.
