UPDATED INFORMATION (March 18, 2020)
The Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers has granted an extension of continuing competency requirements for a period of six months after the deadline for any renewal due by March 31.
You are encouraged to complete continuing education hours on-line before the renewal deadline. (To access a listing of Board-approved CE providers and courses that may be offered online, please visit the Board’s website at: https://www.dhp.virginia.gov/funeral/docs/FDE_ApprovedCEProviders.pdf).
Remember that you will have to make up incomplete hours and will not be able to double count CE hours for the next renewal period.
On the renewal form, you will need to check “no” to the question about completion of continuing competency requirements. Do not falsify information on the form by checking “yes” if you are using the six-month extension. You will still be able to renew and your license/registration will be valid. There will be a notation in the system that you have a six-month extension.
