Continuing Education Requirement
Six hours of continuing education are required annually. There are three sources of CE which will satisfy your obligation. Hours may be earned in part or wholly from these sources.
DMEC offers webinars, national conferences and local chapter meetings which are CE-qualified. Information on these opportunities is always available on the DMEC website: www.DMEC.org . Designees using these venues must report their hours to IEA using this CE reporting form. Additionally, all Disability Management Coalition (DMEC) educational programs, including chapter meetings and the Annual Conference, are also pre-approved for CE hours.
IEA offers streaming video and classroom seminars which are CE-qualified. Information and enrollment links are available on IEA's website. IEA's streaming video content is catalogued for CPDM appropriate material. For designees whose primary role is in the workers' compensation field, any of IEA's WC seminars will provide value.

From time to time, providers other than DMEC and IEA will provide CE-qualified content. Designees using these venues must report their hours to IEA using this
CE reporting form and pay a processing and registration fee of $20 per hour.
