Note: States that do not require an application
Because of Parker’s accreditation status, some state boards do not require Parker to submit their CE programs for pre-approval.

We strongly recommend doctors from these states be aware of your state rules and regulations regarding continuing education requirements. Specific questions should always be directed to your state board.

CE & Attendance Verification
- Before attending a Parker University sponsored event for continuing education credit, always check the website or call the CE department to verify your state board’s approval. If your state is listed on the website as not requiring an application be submitted from Parker, check with your board to be sure the course content falls within your board’s scope of practice requirements/definitions.
- Course attendance hours are calculated by the use of sign in/out sheets/attendance cards or scanning devices. Failure to comply with the required attendance procedures or failure to remain in the classroom or teaching facility may result in a loss of credit hours reported. The CE Department is required by the various state reporting agencies to verify attendance at each seminar. Verification is issued for the documented hours only.
- After verification of the attendance logs, CE attendance vouchers are mailed to the doctor or to the appropriate state board depending on each board’s regulations. Registrants are responsible for maintaining a copy for their records.
- Parker University does not complete attendance vouchers for continuing education credits until the course is paid in full. A $25 US fee is assessed for each additional copy of attendance vouchers reproduced after the initial mailing at the course conclusion.
