The NIPR does not maintain or process course completion data. Access to the renewal application is granted once the state electronically notifies the NIPR that you are CE compliant. We are unable to override the status. You may select your resident state name from the map on the following link: /map_continuing_education_requirements.htm to view your CE transcript and determine whether the state has updated your status to compliant in their system and on what date. It generally takes up to 72 hours from the compliance date for the status to be updated in our system.
