Virginia CLE® is pleased to offer a number of seminars that are approved for Virginia Indigent Defense Commission (VIDC) Non-Capital Misdemeanor/Felony Re-Certification Credit. These courses are not approved for Juvenile Re-Certification Credit, unless specifically noted.

RE-CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
Pursuant to Code of Virginia, §19.2-163.03, after initially qualifying for Felony and Misdemeanor certification to accept court appointed cases, the attorney shall maintain eligibility for certification biennially by notifying the VIDC of completion of at least 6.0 hours of VIDC and MCLE-approved continuing legal education.

In addition, to maintain eligibility to accept court appointments in Juvenile cases, an attorney shall complete biennially thereafter 4.0 additional hours of VIDC and MCLE-approved continuing legal education on representing juveniles. Please note that CLE on representing juveniles can be used towards Misdemeanor/Felony Re-Certification. But generally, Misdemeanor/Felony CLE does not apply towards Juvenile Re-Certification.
