Only educational and business programs that relate specifically to the practice of those disciplines will be granted credits. Although ABC will acknowledge content outside their Scope of Practice, credentialed individuals are required to earn the majority of their continuing education credits from content specifically related to their ABC credential. To ensure that your application can be processed in a timely manner, you must include the application fee and the course or program agenda. You must also identify those disciplines for which your program is applicable. Category I credits will be awarded to those individuals credentialed with ABC in the disciplines for which your program is most relevant. Category II credits will be awarded to all other participants. ABC lists all preapproved courses on its website under Credit Opportunities. We encourage you to apply as early as possible so that the program or meeting date(s) can be viewed by as many participants as possible. ABC will gladly add new dates as they become available. This promotion of your program is at no additional cost. Forms are also available for elearning courses, new programs as well as for reapplying for a previously approved program.
