Does your line of work require continuing education, certification or other mandatory refreshers?

Do you hate having your career always "on the line" because of this? Do you wait till the last minute to do what needs doing?

She is required to earn credits from continuing ed courses to renew RN license every 4 yrs. Last year have to get a CM certification also for a job she has been doing for 7 yrs. The company wanted the certificate for the wall.

I had to renew my FSMC every 4-5 years.

I work for an health insurance company as an auditor and I do not CEUs. But the clinical staff do, the company provides several different choices they can take and also pays for the continuing education.

I have 2 different jobs (physical therapy assistant, and massage therapist) and both of them require CEUs to keep up my licenses. I didn't mind when it was just the one license to keep up, but it's become a real hassle now since I feel like I am ALWAYS doing CEUs. However I do feel like I learn a lot from them and that they make me a better therapist.

I am required to attend various training classes and pass the testing, but it's usually policy related and not specifically for the enhancement of my job skills.

I've been a cook for a few years now at a large company, and they just require occasional policy retraining sessions for food safety, preventing injuries, etc.

My current job (pet store retail, yay...) doesn't require it, but I'm currently going to school to become a vet tech, which does require continuing education every few years.

It's not like I want to wait till the last minute, but that is when management reminds me about the training I have to do.

Unfortunately I am stuck in a job a monkey could do, so no training really needed.

Technically, I don't have to do any additional training for my current job. I just do it because it looks good as far as credentials go, keeps my boss happy, and, occasionally, I actually learn something useful.
