Random audits of licensees are conducted after each reporting period to ensure continuing competence compliance (Board Rule 21 NCAC 48G .0110). All licensees are required to keep documentation or “evidence of compliance” for each activity counted toward fulfilling the requirement. Details on what information is needed to document continuing competence activities are found in Board Rule 21 NCAC 48G .0109.

At the time of licensure renewal and at the end of your reporting period, you will be prompted to update your online Continuing Competence Report attesting to the completion of your requirement.

Your reporting period is determined by your date of licensure. It is very important that licensees retain evidence of compliance with the continuing competence requirements for a period of four (4) years following any reporting period to be able to comply with a possible audit.

If you receive an Audit Notice:

  • Collect the necessary documents (originals or copies of originals documenting all activities completed during the reporting period as well as any carry over points).
  • Send the documents for the required reporting period via mail within 30 days of receiving the Audit Notice from the Board.
  • Contact the Board if you do not know how to define or document items, or with other questions. Additional information is available on the website or email and note "Continuing Competence Question" in the subject line.
Note – Random audits occur for the safety of the public. Audits that are not completed in a reasonable period of time will be referred to the Board Investigative Committee and could result in disciplinary actions.
