Are your courses approved by both the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) and the KBHA?

Our courses are approved by the AARC and accepted by the KBHA. Here are our recommendations:

“At least six contact hours shall be obtained each reporting year from seminars or symposiums that provide for direct interaction between the speakers and the participants.” Our Interactive Webinars (CEUs > Real-Time Live Broadcast) meet this criteria.

“A maximum of six contact hours each reporting year may be obtained from nontraditional or alternative educational programs…The licensee shall submit proof of successful completion of a test administered as part of the nontraditional or alternative educational program.” Our Self-Directed courses (CEUs > Self-Directed) meet this criteria. The certificate obtained will be your proof of completion.

How much does my renewal cost?

License renewal is $75 ($72 online). An initial license is $80.
