Code Enforcement Officer Registration Program Continuing Education - List of Approved CE Classes

Loading...

Courses approved as acceptable continuing education for renewal of a code enforcement officer registration in Texas include:

1. Any course approved for license renewal by another Texas regulatory agency in appropriate subject matter:

The curriculum of an approved activity must include one or more of the following subjects: (1) zoning and zoning ordinance enforcement's; (2) sign regulations; (3) home occupations; (4) housing codes and ordinances; (5) building abatement; (6) nuisance violations; (7) abandoned vehicles; (8) junk vehicles; (9) health ordinances; (10) basic processes of law related to code enforcement; (11) professional, supervisory or management training related to the profession of code enforcement; or (12) legislative or legal updates related to the profession of code enforcement.

Contact the course sponsor before attending such a course to confirm that the course is approved for license renewal by another regulatory board or agency. You should keep proof of attendance, including number of hours granted and information showing which licensing board, program, or agency approved the continuing education, to produce in the event you are subject to a random audit.

2. Upcoming courses approved in accordance with the new rules on continuing education listed below in date order:

If the course you are planning to attend is not listed below, contact the course sponsor to find out whether the sponsor plans to have the course approved in accordance with the Code Enforcement Officer Registration Rules related to continuing education. If yes, the sponsor must send notice to our office at least 15 days prior to the event (30 day notice is preferred).

Once the date of a course is passed, we will remove it from our list.

You will know whether a course you have attended is approved, because any person who attends an approved course will receive a certificate from the course sponsor showing: his/her name; the name of the organization providing the training, the title of the activity; the date and location of the activity, and the continuing education hours earned. The certificate will state "Approved in accordance with 25 Texas Administrative Code, §140.168 for code enforcement officer/code enforcement officer in training registration renewal in Texas" and it will include a breakdown of the hours earned.

Keep copies of all certificates you receive from courses approved in accordance with these rules, to produce in the event you are subject to a random continuing education audit.
