Has anybody found that it is NOT a requirement for licensing in MA?

Just 4 hours of an ethics CPE every other year. August 30, 2011 at 5:10 pm #293891 mla1169Participant Thanks so much! I am closer to being “done” than I thought I was. Just have to wait now to finish school in December (going for a non reporting license, no experience here!) My kids are making lists for me of what “fun moms” are supposed to do, since they only remember me as a “boring mom” They may be very surprised to find me as a “sleeping mom” for about a year…..
