How many CEUs does Arizona require?

Arizona requires 20 CEUs completed within the last 2 years. The Board shall accept no more than 15 CEUs during an initial licensure period or a two-year licensure period for courses or activities a licensee completed online, except for live courses or activities a licensee completed online. At least 2 ethics courses must be completed per renewal. Arizona has very specific requirements for what can be considered live, and our AARC approved as live courses do NOT satisfy “live” requirements in AZ. Sometimes we offer real-time live broadcast classes (which satisfy the requirements for Live courses in AZ), but because we hosted multiple classes with no attendance, we are currently not offering broadcasts.

Are your courses approved by both the AARC and the Arizona State Board of Respiratory Care?

Our courses are approved by the AARC and accepted by the Arizona State Board of Respiratory Care. Our AARC approved Live courses are NOT accepted as Live in Arizona.

How much does my renewal cost?

License renewal in Arizona is $150.
