revision to Specialists’ CLE requirements.

available through self-study modes such as
DVDs, CDs, non-interactive video and
3 The national and local CLE providers offer
advanced programs in self-study formats
which are consistent with the high CLE
standards applicable to specialists.
3Specialists would, as always, be responsible

meets the requisite standards for specialists.
