Can I get all of my CEUs online?

Arkansas has adopted the continuing education definition declared by the AARC, which states that traditional activity requires the learner and provider to interact in real time. Because our live courses provide an opportunity for instructor interaction, all of our live courses are accepted.

Are your courses approved by both the AARC and the Arkansas Respiratory Board?

Our courses are AARC approved and therefore accepted for respiratory license renewal in Arkansas.

How much does my renewal cost?

License renewal is $40, with a $10 fee if your application is late.
