I just got a notice from the state last week, showing my CE credits that carried over from last bi-annum. We have to do 16 in VA, I had 15 carry over (most came from a company provided training I took last fall). So I have to muster up 1 more hr this period. I usually get some credits from attending things that I am interested in and choose to attend, but more often I just take the CE via WebCE. Its less expensive and time consuming. I would not attend free classes or trainings just to get the CE (to save from purchasing). I think I paid $39 for 24hrs with WebCE, iirc.
