Continuing Education Requirements
- Every 2 years a Certified Crop Advisor must complete 40 hours of continuing education units (CEUs). One continuing education unit is equal to one hour of classroom training. Registrants are required to take a minimum of 20 CEUs that have been CCA Board approved. CEUs submitted by registrants are subject to be audited by the registrant's state CCA Board.
- A CCA registrant's certification may be revoked for failing to maintain the required CEUs. To regain certification a registrant must appeal to the state CCA board for reinstatement or pass the international and state exams and meet the current eligibility requirement.
- Self Study Options
ICCA has introduced the online CCA CEU application that has been updated to include the automatic assigning of the tracking number and the automatic creation of the sign in sheet that will include the QR code for scanning by participants.
