How many CEUs does Arizona require?
Arizona requires 20 CEUs completed within the last 2 years. You are required to 1) submit your CEUs as part of the renewal application and, 2) keep and maintain CEU documentation for five (5) 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. Our Interactive Webinars (Real-Time Live Broadcast courses) are accepted by Arizona as live. In addition, when last checked there is still a Live Continuing Education Waiver in place (see the first item under Resource Links for the latest info). Pursuant to Executive Order 2020-17, our Live courses (recorded with “live” credit) *DO* satisfy “live” requirements in Arizona. See our Discounts page for special offers (including Unlimited CEUs).
Are your courses approved by both the AARC and the Arizona State Board of Respiratory Care Examiners (ASBRCE)?
Our courses are approved by the AARC and accepted by the ASBRCE.
