How do I claim my course for continuing education credits/hours (CE's or CEU's)?

Claiming continuing education credits/hours

To claim your course for continuing education credits, it's important to note that there are different courses that are, and are not, accepted through your state board and licensing department(s). 

We encourage you to find out if CPR, BLS, ACLS, PALS, First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens, or other health and safety courses are accepted as continuing education credits for your occupation by checking with your state board and licensing department(s). 

Once you have that information, you can take the steps you need to move forward to claim these credits and turn in your required course certifications to meet your licensing guidelines. 

ProTrainings offers different ways to collect those CE's. 

  1. Print your ProTrainings CEU Statement or wallet certification from your Training Dashboard by clicking on the Print Documents button. They both will state your course with the 'X' number of hours of content that course allows. You'll also see the curriculum listed that was taught as part of that course. 
  2. Medical professionals aligned with national accrediting agencies such as; ACME, ANCC, ACPE, and ADA CERP can claim CEs by following these steps.
  3. Emergency Medical Responders can claim their BLS course credits to CAPCE if the course contains a hands-on practical demonstration. Just fill out and submit this form for your CEs and we'll submit those for you. 
  4. Dental professionals can claim AGD PACE credits by completing a healthcare level hands-on course can also get CE's. If you submit your information here we'll take care of submitting those for you.
Note: that even if your CE's are submitted properly, and accepted by the national agencies above, they could be accepted for fewer hours than your statement shows, or even rejected by your state department. For these few instances, this does not mean that submitting the CE's isn't worthwhile. The credits you submit are still connected to the accrediting agency and in your records for your professional education, development, and training records. You can always check with the specific continuing education department or your state for more information.
