Continuing Professional Development
As recognized providers of quality continuing education for 50 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. From the beginning, we are involved with program planning to ensure the programs we provide credit for meet established guidelines for audience assessment, program objectives, evaluation, and faculty requirements for unbiased, evidence-based presentations.
