Face-to-Face Training Requirement
Department of Consumer Affairs - November 25, 2020


On March 4, 2020, the Governor proclaimed a State of Emergency to exist in California as a result of the impacts of COVID-19 to make additional resources available, formalize emergency actions already underway across multiple state agencies and departments, and help the state prepare to respond to an increasing number of individuals requiring medical care and hospitalization as a result of a broader spread of COVID-19.

Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-39-20, during the State of Emergency, the Director of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may waive any statutory or regulatory professional licensing requirement pertaining to individuals licensed pursuant to Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code.

On June 4, 2020, the Director issued an Order Waiving Face-to-Face Training Requirement. The order was scheduled to expire on August 3, 2020, but on July 31, 2020, the Director extended it to October 2, 2020. On September 17, 2020, the Director further extended it to December 1, 2020.

The Director hereby further extends the Order Waiving Face-to-Face Training Requirement by an additional 60 days. The order now terminates January 30, 2021, unless further extended.

This order is effective immediately but may be amended as circumstances require.

Dated: November 25, 2020
