If a licensee is exempt from completing continuing education as stated in Rule 64B5-12.0135, F.A.C., must he or she complete the required courses?

The rule does not relieve a licensee from the obligation to obtain training required by ss. 456.013(7), 456.031 and 456.033, Florida Statutes, as a condition of license renewal. These requirements include a course in HIV/AIDS no later than the first license renewal, a two hour course relating to prevention of medical errors each biennium and domestic violence every third biennium.
