Continuing Education Recognition Program

Application submission requirements 

  1. A Continuing Education Program Application Form, which includes presentation start and stop times, presentation topics/titles, presenter names, presentation locations and dates, number of total hours of CE credits requested, and application fee payment information. 
  2. Presenter Information Forms, or create your own document providing details of all presenters’ qualifications, including education, board certification, current organizations, and affiliations.
  3. A brief summary/abstract of each topic to be presented as part of the program. 

 

Please note

Incomplete application packages won't be considered.

Approval is based on one credit for each lecture hour. The minimum "hour" is 50 minutes long. The smallest increment that will be considered for approval is a half hour. 

Sponsor(s) must be clearly identified and must include an estimate of time devoted to the expression of commercial interests.

Presentations given by people who are employed by the sponsoring company creates a conflict of interest and are not likely to be granted CE credit approval.

Presenters must be competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience. In general, presenters of a specific topic should have at least the same level of education, or higher, as the people they're presenting to. Presentations and presenters will be evaluated individually with eligibility based on educational content.

A $150 Program Application Fee is required for all applications, as well as a $20 per-hour course fee. Per-hour fees are calculated based on the total hours of programming you want to have reviewed. For programs that have multiple sessions from which a participant may select (like a conference), per-hour fees are calculated on the total number of hours available, not the number of hours for any one participant.

Full payment must accompany each request for approval of your continuing education program. Only one fee applies where the program will be delivered in a number of locations, given there are no changes made to the presentation material or presenters.

Our Continuing Education Committee meets on a regular basis to consider requests for Continuing Education Credits. The application process can take 4–6 weeks to complete upon receipt of all required information.
