Suicide Prevention CEU clarification in Utah
There is currently a bill that will be passed this month that will require the Recreation Therapy professions to complete a 2 hour CEU class in Suicide Prevention. You will need to complete this class in order to obtain your license and it will be required as part of the 20 hour CEUs required for renewal. So, of the 20 hours you will need for renewal, 2 hours will need to be this Suicide Prevention class.
This is NOT required for the May 2015 renewal cycle.
It WILL be required for the May 2017 renewal cycle.
