ADHA Policy on Requests for Awarding Continuing Education Credit for External Educational Courses

Members and nonmembers may request support from ADHA asking the association to award continuing education (CE) for their upcoming educational program. These inquiries/request will be granted based on the following criteria:

  1. Must email [email protected] with:
    • Course title
    • Course description
    • Learning objectives (minimum of 3)
    • Date(s) of event
    • Speaker name(s) & qualifications
    • Number of CEs provided (should be 1 CE per hour of educational content)
    • Live or recorded content? (or indicate both)
    • Are all attendees ADHA members?
    • What is the registration fee? (Include ADHA member or nonmember pricing)
    • Is this program sponsored? If so, does the sponsor influence the content or the speaker?
  2. Requests must be submitted 4-6 weeks in advance of the course date.
  3. Processing fee is $35 for each time the course is presented, to be paid through the CE Request Payment Portal.
    Example: if the course is offered three times (3x$35), the cost is $105.
  4. Upon payment, please email [email protected] with the date of transaction and related course title.
  5. After payment and materials have been received, ADHA will review and send notification of approval or decline via email within 2 weeks.

Parameters of ADHA assistance include:

  • Upon approval, ADHA will provide a letter of authorization with accreditation information. The sponsoring organization is responsible for providing their own CE certificate of attendance.
  • ADHA will not maintain records of attendance for the program. Post event, the sponsoring organization is responsible for maintaining their own records of attendance for auditing purposes.
  • Communications about the event will NOT be posted on the ADHA website or social media sites.
  • Requests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis
