Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of frequently asked questions we receive from CE/CME activity planners. If you have a question that cannot be answered below, contact Anita Cleere for help.


The value goes beyond helping health professionals obtain the CE/CME to renew their certificates and licenses. Health professionals must be life-long learners. Increasing knowledge includes learning best practices, and staying up-to-date on the latest research. Accredited activities provide a protected environment for learning, free of commercial bias.

Please contact us in the earliest phases of development (ideally no less than 90 days before the activity date, materials prepared 75 days in advance). Why? Accreditors each have unique requirements and timelines. To ensure content is relevant to the specialty being accredited and meets requirements, we must be directly involved in the planning or development. We have several community partnerships, and work diligently to honor commitments.

We sponsor most of the work we do for community partners (who seek to provide CE to health professionals free of charge to participants). Sponsorship or fees are determined on a case-by-case basis for every activity in the early phase of partnership development.

Basic Life Support (BLS)

The terms are often used interchangeable, especially online. If you are required to be certified, make sure you choose the right course. Most health professions are required to be certified in Basic Life Support (BLS) if they have direct patient contact.  Each organization may have its own policies in place to stay compliant with state and federal requirements. 

There are 3 common formats: Classroom (in-person), Blended Learning (online coursework, with an in-person skills component), and online only classes.

Note: Some organizations only accept certifications with an in-person skills component. Do your due diligence before signing up for any course!
