As of January 1, 2020, all licensed professionals in Illinois are required to complete a 1 CEU hour course in Sexual Harassment Prevention. This does not to include the mandatory annual training that an employer is to conduct for all employees in their practice. The annual employee training must be taken in office and on company time (paid). The 1 CEU hour course taken for your licensure renewal must be an IDFPR approved provider (if you are unsure, please contact IDFPR to verify), and you must obtain and present the completion certificate to IDFPR if asked.
