Continuing Education (CE)

Need CE credit?

Most courses offer CE for a fee ($3/credit hour). Select the Enroll (CE) button for a simple payment process, then access the course material. (Note: both CE and No CE courses offer the same content, those requiring CE MUST enroll in the CE course due to the documentation process.) Instructions for accessing your CE and certificate are below. We are not able to issue refunds once a course has been completed. 

Don’t need CE? 

All of our course content is still available for free by clicking the Enroll (No CE) button. No certificate is available, but instructions to see completed courses in your account transcript can be found below.

Obtaining CE and Certificates of Completion

Some trainings offer CE for free, although most CE will cost a small fee to obtain. International transactions are not accepted for our trainings. The process to obtain CE is the same regardless of whether it is for a fee or free. 

If you earn CHES/MCHES credit, that will be reported to NCHEC by the RVPHTC on a quarterly basis (January, April, July, October). If you complete a course for CNE, you will need to submit credit to your licensing body on your own.
