Tom Raymond Posted March 24, 2010 Report Share Posted March 24, 2010 My renewal date is coming up, so I thought I would check in with NY to see if any the training I did for my day job or my ZBA appointment would be accepted for HI CE credits. I have 14 hours approved, and 24 hours up in the air (until yesterday). 12 hours of solar energy training does not qualify because the provider is not on the list of approved educators. I can live with that. 8 hours of HUD/EPA LRRP Lead Hazard Certification training does not qualify because the application for approval is still pending. The provider is not on the list of approved educators, and must be aproved before their course can be. They are good enough for HUD and the EPA but apparently not for NY, very disappointing. 4 hours of Zoning Law training, which meets the legal obligation for training for every local government employee in the state, does not qualify because the provider is not on the list of approved educators. Apparently the NY Dept. of State isn't qualified to make it onto their own list. I'm not making this up, that is the official position of the Bureau of Educational Standards. How sad is that?
