As part of our certification program, we require that certificants participate in continuing education (CE) courses. This ensures that all certificants maintain and grow their professional expertise and commitment. BOC works with course providers, on a one-time or ongoing basis, to develop CE programs.
Continuing Education Requirements
To maintain your certification status, you need to complete a specific number of CE credit hours and verify your accomplishment to BOC. Each certification program has specific CE requirements.

For information about becoming a BOC-Approved CE Course sponsor or to register courses in the BOC-Approved CE Course Program, please review the Continuing Education Course Providers Approval Program.
How To Earn Continuing Education Units
BOC certification programs allow professionals to have greater autonomy and flexibility in meeting their continuing education unit (CEU) requirements. Here are some of the CE options we offer:
structured educational courses or training courses - you or the course provider need to provide proof of attendance and credits awarded
manufacturer-sponsored programs (in-services) - related to new products and/or techniques
independent study of professional or academic journals - BOC will recognize 1 CE credit hour per article - you must submit the article itself and a 1 page, single spaced summary of the article
participation or attendance at relevant trade shows - you need to submit completed Exhibit Hall Attendance form
teaching educational seminars - BOC will recognize 3 CE credit hours per hour of teaching a course - you need to submit a detailed course outline, along with references used to develop the course
As a BOC-Certified Professional, it is your responsibility to correctly report all continuing education work to BOC.
How To Enter Continuing Education Units
BOC Certificants can enter their own CEUs online through MyBOC, their personal web portal.
- Log into your MyBOC account. If you need help logging in or would like more information, please visit the CE FAQ page.
- Scroll down to "CEUs" and press "Click here to add new CEUs."
- Enter the course date, title, provider, category, and number of credits awarded in the provided fields.
From time to time, BOC staff will conduct random audits of CEU documentation. Certificants should retain the records that verify their completion of CEUs submitted online through the end of each five-year cycle; the current cycle ends December 31, 2014. For details on documentation please review pages four through six of our Recertification Policy.
