How To Post Continuing Education Credits

The rule requires that you have 30 total hours of continuing education each cycle. Your total hours will appear as “General” on the website when you enter credits or check your hours. 5 of the 30 hours must be in ethics or professionalism. You still need 30 total hours. In other words, your “General” column must equal 30. The Ethics/Professionalism column must equal 5. You do not add General + Ethics/Professionalism to determine total number of hours.

1. Click on Post Your CLE Course Credits. That will take you to the Login Page.

2. If you have already obtained a password, you may login now. If you have not obtained a password, you must do so before you can enter your credits. Instructions for obtaining a password are at www.floridabar.org/frp.
