In VA I only have to have 6 hours of CE. However, since I can be nerdy I tend to get a lot more. When I first graduated I was so afraid that I would never get my hours but it has never been a problem. CE can be found online, through magazines, or through local meetings. There are also huge meetings all the time throughout the year in different places. This year I was lucky enough to go to the AAHA convention in Denver.
Here in VA they do a lottery system to see if you have all your CE. If they pick your name you have to prove that you've done your hours. If you don't have them you have to pay a fine and your name is listed on the website.
