CNA continuing education requirements

In California a certified nurses’ assistant must complete 48 hours of continuing education every two years in order to renew his or her certificate.
Understanding Unit Requirements
In general, the CNA licensing period in California is two years. The initial term varies depending on your birthday, but it's at least two years. During each licensing period, CNAs must complete at least 48 hours of continuing education units or in-service training, with a minimum of 12 units each year. Continuing education units, or CEUs, are supplemental training outside of work hours, such as college classes, while in-service training is provided through your employer during work hours. You may also count up to 24 hours of online training.
