OAR 809-025-0010
Continuing Education Requirements

(1) Each registrant shall complete eight (8) hours of qualifying continuing education activities during the annual renewal period as a condition of registration, with the exception of:
(a) A registrant that is a Geologist-in-Training (GIT) is exempt from continuing education activity requirements. The Board encourages GITs to voluntarily complete continuing education activities.
(b) A registrant granted an initial registration as a Registered Geologist under 809-030-0015 (Qualifications for Geologist Practice Examination and Geologist Registration) is exempt from continuing education activity requirements for the first year of registration with the Board; and
(c) A registrant granted an exemption by the Board under 809-025-0040 (Exemptions).
(2) A registrant must certify through signature or electronic means at the time of renewal that the registrant has completed the minimum required number of hours of continuing education activities and maintained documentation of completion as required by these rules.
(3) If a registrant exceeds eight (8) hours of qualifying structured or self-directed educational activities within the renewal period, the registrant may carry over up to eight (8) hours into the next renewal period. Hours in excess of eight (8) hours may not be carried over into the next renewal period.
(4) These continuing education activity requirements are effective as of January 1, 2021. This means that a registrant, unless otherwise exempt under this rule, who applies for a registration renewal after January 1, 2022 must have completed the required continuing education activities in the 2021-2022 renewal year. A registrant must complete the annual continuing education activity hours in each subsequent renewal year after January 1, 2021, unless otherwise exempt under this rule in any given renewal year.
