CPE Course Announced for the 2017-2018 Licensing Cycle
At the last Liaison Committee meeting, the NSAR mandatory course, Advertising in the Digital Age, was suggested as possible NSREC mandatory course for next year's licensing cycle (July 2017–June 2018). The Committee, which is made up of board members from both the NSAR and the NSREC, felt that the course would give the NSAR and the NSREC an opportunity to collaborate to the benefit of the industry. The course was put forward to the Licensing Committee at their June 1st meeting along with a number of proposed revisions to make the course comply with requirements of an NSREC-approved mandatory.

The Licensing Committee approved the course, subject to the revisions, as a mandatory course for all licensees for the 2017-2018 licensing cycle. The most recently scheduled Advertising in the Digital Age courses have been cancelled to permit the course to be updated. Once the course is updated, courses will resume.

Licensees who have already taken the course will be provided with an updated course manual and a summary of changes via the NSAR Dashboard.

As the NSREC mandatory courses are developed in the summer and the requirements announced in early fall, if there are additional course requirements, those requirements will be announced as usual this fall.
