How many CEUs does New York require?

Respiratory therapists must take 30 contact hours of continuing education in each three-year registration period; respiratory therapy technicians must take 24 hours of continuing education in each triennium.

Can I get all of my CEUs online?

Both “formal” and “informal” (on our website, live and self-directed) courses are acceptable. For respiratory therapists, informal self-study courses must constitute not more than half of the total hours (a maximum of 15 contact hours out of 30). For respiratory therapy technicians, informal self-study courses must constitute no more than half of the total hours (a maximum of 12 contact hours out of 24).

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

Yes, our courses are approved by the AARC and therefore accepted by New York as Category III courses.
