Current Course Offerings


Sandhills Community College and Moore County have developed an effective procedure for recertification.

A scope of practice examinations and review of paperwork for the hours needed to recertify are held each month. Call or email for an appointment and to request your transcripts.

A review of your continuing education record will be made to determine if you have enough hours. If you do not, you will have until your expiration date to complete them.

We will help you prepare the paperwork that is to be sent off to the state. This will complete your scope of practice testing.

Please come within three months of when your certification expires. Doing so will help assure that you have completed all hours needed to recertify in advance of your expiration date.
