Process for Submitting CEs to Department of State

1/07/15 - Information for mandated reporters who have licenses under the PA Department of State: There has been some confusion and some panic for those who have already applied for licensure renewal. PFSA is required to upload licensee’s information directly to Department of State (DOS). The system to do so through DOS only became available at the end of last week. Therefore, persons who have already applied for licensure renewal are receiving a discrepancy letter; there is no cause for concern. PFSA is scheduled to upload information on Friday for all attendees to this point. We will upload information once a week thereafter. You should have received a link to complete PFSA's web form for CEs. If you did not complete this web form, please do so now if you have already applied for renewal. If you haven’t applied yet, please complete prior to applying. You will need your training date and trainer’s name, which can be found on your certificate. We cannot upload your information if you do not complete the web form. Please contact PFSA at info@pa-fsa.org to request a link for completing the web form.
