Partner with Piedmont AHEC and Let Us Do the Work

As recognized providers of quality continuing education for over 40 years, we are experts at assembling the appropriate stakeholders, conducting effective needs assessments, and producing, delivering and evaluating innovative and cost-effective education and training in multiple modalities. We enjoy a position of trust with many professional accreditation boards in the state who have accepted the AHEC contact hour/CEU as a "seal of approval" for educational programs. We are involved with program planning from the beginning in order to ensure the programs we provide credit for are meeting established guidelines for audience assessment, program objectives and evaluation, as well as faculty requirements for unbiased, evidence-based presentations. If you are interested in partnering with Piedmont AHEC we look forward to learning more about your educational activity and exploring ways we can support you to achieve the best possible outcomes for the learners.

What is the first step in planning a continuing education event with credit?

Please complete and submit the CPD Partnership Inquiry Form at least four months prior to the date of your anticipated event. Our Educational Activity Review Committee will consider your request for its alignment with our mission, strategic objectives, and resource availability. A representative will contact you to discuss next steps.

What credit may be obtained through Piedmont AHEC?

Piedmont AHEC collaborates with healthcare and academic organizations to plan continuing education activities offering a variety of types of CE credit: CEUs, CNE (nursing), NBCC (counseling), ACPE (pharmacy), CME (medicine), Category A Contact Hours for Psychologists, etc. Our continuing education staff team is available to talk with you about planning your educational activity. All accrediting bodies differ in their requirements for credit. Only through a conversation are we able to determine what types of credit we are able to award for your activity.

What does it cost to work with AHEC?
