In 2013 The Department of Health (and consequently the Board of Laboratory Personnel) integrated a continuing education tracking system with the state’s license renewal system. This continuing education tracking system is a private company called “CE Broker.” CE Broker has placed the name and license number of every health care licensee in the State of Florida into its data base. In addition, with a few exceptions, all Florida-approved continuing education providers must register their courses with CE Broker. You may go to the CE Broker website https://www.cebroker.com/
(click on "Course Search") and search for these courses at no charge. All continuing education providers must submit to CE Broker a record of completed courses for each licensee. CE Broker then uses this information to create and maintain a transcript for each licensee, showing the courses taken, by category, during that particular two year period. Approved providers have up to 90 days to submit continuing education credits to CE Broker and, in turn, CE Broker has 24 hours to post them to the licensee’s transcript.
CE Broker offers a basic account which allows you to access your course history and report additional continuing education at no charge. They also offer two additional accounts of which there is a charge. The more popular is the Professional account for $29 per year. With this account you can: 1) see how your courses count toward your current requirements and know when you are 100% compliant; 2) report additional hours; and 3) search for additional courses that meet your requirements and save them to your account so you can take them at a later date.
Licensees must now complete and enter into CE Broker all required continuing education before the issuance of a new license.
