Continuing Education Submission Instructions

DMEC provides continuing education for our webinars throughout the year. Below are requirements and submission instructions for each of the designations and certifications covered. Please note: Not all webinars qualify for CLMS CEUs. Review each event to determine if it qualifies.

If you registered for and attended a live webinar, you will receive a certificate of attendance and CEU verification/activity ID codes for the event. If you registered for a webinar, but did not attend live, you will receive a link to the webinar recording and will have the opportunity to watch the recording and earn continuing education.

DMEC Certifications

Certified Leave Management Specialist (CLMS)

CLMS designees must complete 20 hours of continuing education (CE) credit every two years and pay for and pass a recertification exam.

If you were a current CLMS designee, or actively enrolled in a CLMS course, on Jan. 1, 2024, your first recertification period after that date will require 16 CE credits. From that point forward, you must complete the new requirement of 20 CEUs every two years to be eligible to recertify your designation.

Instructions to Submit CEUs:
  • Log into the DMEC Learning Center and select “My Continuing Education” from the dashboard.
