My issue was two-fold. One was making sure to get the organized credit (as JMO noted), but the other issue was me simply failing to record all the activities that can count for CE. I see that I easily exceed the 30 hrs/year, but since didn't record all the times I was reading articles, researching, etc. it was a lot harder. I'm learning from this and recording everything going forward, so I'll just be maintaining the "red-tape" issues now.

And a to you, MountainHawk - I wish the SOA had laid it out that way in the first place, since that is the intention. I still don't think it clearly states what you laid out, but I'm convinced that's what they mean.
