Receiving Credit for Completed Courses

In New Jersey, continuing education schools provide notice of course completion to PSI. We submit notice of course completions three times a week. In turn, the NJREC posts credit to your education transcript.

NOTE: Each time you complete a course on the CBT website, you will receive a courtesy email from us that verifies your completion. You will receive a second email each time we submit notice of a course completion to the state.

After NJREC posts credit to your education transcript you can renew your license. Click this link to navigate to the state website:
