Continuing Education

Minnesota requires 15 hours of continuing education every two years. All licensed morticians who currently have an active mortuary science license ending with an odd number are required to obtain continuing education reports during each odd year renewal cycle (2015, 2017, etc). All licensed morticians who currently have an active mortuary science license ending with an even number are required to obtain continuing education during each even year renewal cycle (2016, 2018, etc.) For example, if John Doe's license number is M-1234, he must obtain his CE credits prior to renewing in December, 2015 for license year 2016.

Minnesota Statute 149A.40, Subd. 11 now reads:

Subd. 11. Continuing education. The commissioner shall require 15 continuing education hours for renewal of a license to practice mortuary science. Nine of the hours must be in the following areas body preparation, care, or handling, 3 CE hours; professional practices, 3 CE hours; regulation and ethics, 3 CE hours. Continuing education hours shall be reported to the commissioner every other year based on the licensee's license number. Licensees whose license ends in an odd number must report CE hours at renewal time every odd year. If a licensee's license ends in an even number, the licensee must report the licensee's CE hours at renewal time every even year.

The following calendar contains information on approved continuing education programs. If there is a continuing education program that offers credit to licensees and the program is not listed on the calendar, the provider of the course must apply for approval.
