AAMA | Continuing Education Credits |


AAMA CEU’s and Contact Hours 

  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded for AAMA education programs according to the criteria set by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training, i.e., one hour of continuing education equals 0.1 CEU (point one CEU). CEU’s are awarded in increments of 0.5 CEU (point five CEU)
  • Contact hours are awarded on an hour by hour basis, i.e., one hour of continuing education equals one contact hour
  • The actual number of CEUs or contact hours awarded to conference participants is based on sessions attended. Those sessions are recorded by attendees on their evaluation forms
  • Certificates are sent when requested following the conference
