Partnering with Wake AHEC

Credit obtained through Wake AHEC
Wake AHEC partners with healthcare organizations to plan continuing education events offering a variety of types of CE credit – CEUs, CME, CNE, NBCC, ACPE, Category A Contact Hours for Psychologists, etc. Our continuing education staff are available to talk with you about an event you are planning.

What types of events earn CE credit?
All accrediting bodies differ in their requirements for credit. Only through a conversation are we able to determine what types of credit your event could earn. Continuing education events generally share these characteristics:

  • They are formally planned with specific dates and times;
  • They are led by an expert;
  • They are designed for the scope of practice of specific target audiences;
  • The teaching methods can reasonably achieve the behavioral learning objectives; and
  • Generally events like business meetings, self-help groups, clinical supervision groups and entertainment programs are not eligible for credit.

Accreditation agencies have different regulations. Some types of credit require that a Wake AHEC educator be part of the planning from the very beginning.
