Kansas License Renewals and Continuing Education:

Because almost all on-sight (in person) continuing education programs have been canceled due to the Pandemic, the requirement on the maximum of 50% of home study/correspondence courses has been lifted. Individual licenses due March 31, April 30 and May 31, 2020 may submit a maximum of twelve (12) hours of home study/correspondence hours (for embalmers and funeral directors) and a maximum of two (2) hours of home study/correspondence hours for crematory operators. We will re-evaluate an extension of this change in the future and will advise you accordingly. Thank you very much.
