    Please be familiar with the new CE rules from the BOE. Renewing before April 1, 2015, follow the old rules of 20 CEs and ABC categories. Renewing after that date (ie, 2016, 2017..), follow the new rules of 30 CEs in AB categories, these will be posted to the CE tab after April 1 but can be found at pt.mt.gov on the regulations tab, rules notices announcements.

    BOE's FAQ Sheet which clearly outlines the process (linked here). 

    Where are these rules posted on the BOE site? The rules are posted at the shortcut: pt.mt.gov, see CE Tab. Until April 1, the "old rules" remain. The new rules will be amended as shown at pt.mt.gov, regulations tab, rules notices: http://bsd.dli.mt.gov/license/bsd_boards/ptp_board/pdf/24-177-31pro-arm.pdf . After April 1, the CE Tab on their site will update to the new language for the next renewal period.
