Attention All CA Respiratory Therapists
The below information informs you that you can continue to use “TheCEPlace” until your next license renewal date. Our courses are still AARC or CBRN approved.

Starting 1/1/2024 we will offer all of the new required courses such as live courses and management courses. You will have a bundled option available to choose from to meet all of the new CA CEU requirements and it will all be offered at the same low price of $80 for 30 CEUs.
Implementation Schedule and Information
The new CE regulations will be implemented beginning January 1, 2024, with a two-year transition period that ends December 1, 2025.
The first group to be affected by the new CE requirements are licensees with a December 31, 2023 license expiration date. If your license expires December 31, 2023, you must begin to earn CE under the new requirements beginning January 1, 2024 in order to meet the new CE requirements.

While RCPs whose licenses expire December 31, 2023 must begin to earn CE under the new framework beginning January 1, 2024, licensees with later renewal dates have the option to begin earning CE under the new framework as soon as they like, but not later than their license expiration date.
During the two-year transition, so long as the license expiration date (noted in the first column above) has not passed, an RCP may renew his/her license under the old CE requirements1, the new CE requirements, or a combination of both as follows:
- Obtain a minimum of 15 hours of CE directly related to the practice of respiratory care and
- Obtain another 15 hours that meets the old requirements or the new requirements or a combination of both.
[The “live” course requirement will not be applicable]
However, beginning with your “Renewal Date” as indicated in the first column, all CE earned thereafter, must meet the new CE requirements. Every license that renews on or after December 31, 2025, must have earned CE that meets the new requirements.
For example, a person with a November 30, 2024 license expiration date must begin to earn CE under the new CE requirements on December 31, 2024. However, that same RCP may choose to begin to earn CE under the new requirements between January 1, 2024 and November 30, 2024. So when the licensee renews on November 30, 2024, the RCB will accept CE meeting either the new CE requirements, old CE requirements or a combination as noted above. When this same licensee renews his/her license on November 30, 2026, ALL of the CE earned from December 1, 2024 through November 30, 2026 must meet the new requirements.
