Department of Health License Hours as Clock Hours Information

WAC 181-85-077 allows educational staff associates to use continuing education units (CEUs), credits, or clock hours that satisfy the continuing education requirements for their state professional health license, for Washington and any other state, as in-service credits. Form SPI 4098V is used to document license hours as clock hours for certification purposes. To be eligible, an educational staff associate must hold the following Washington State Department of Health license:

  • Licensed advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) (WAC 246-840-360),
  • Licensed occupational therapist (WAC 246-847-065),
  • Licensed marriage and family therapist (counselor) (WAC 246-809-600),

  • Licensed social worker (WAC 246-809-600), or
  • Licensed speech-language pathologist or audiologist (WAC 246-828-510)

Educational staff associates with other than the above Washington licenses do not require continuing education to maintain their professional health license and may not use continuing education units (CEUs), credits, or clock hours accordingly.
