Provider Instructions

A continuing education (CE) provider is an organization that has submitted training programs to ABA Professional Certifications for CE credit review and approval. CE credit will be awarded if the program relates to one or more knowledge areas on one of ABA Professional Certifications' Exam Outlines. Credit is based on a 50-minute credit hour.

Provider Responsibilities

Once a program has been approved for continuing education (CE) credit by ABA Professional Certifications, program providers are required to:

  • Communicate the amount of credit approved to all attendees/participants.
  • Verify an attendee's participation in a program upon their request for up to 3 years after the program

Approval Statements

CE Providers should use the following language to promote CE credit approval:

"[The title of program] has been approved for [number of credits/certification] credits. This statement should not be viewed as an endorsement of this program or its provider. Certification holders must report these credits at aba.csod.com."

For programs that have been submitted, but not yet approved, the following language may be used:

"[The title of program] has been submitted to ABA Professional Certifications for CE credit review and is pending approval. Once we receive notification of the credit approval, we will notify attendees/participants."

(This information is also provided on the approval letter.)
