Separate X-Ray and CA tracks are also available.
Understanding CE credit requirements
With varying shelter-in-place restrictions due to COVID-19, most states have made arrangements to allow virtual and on-demand content to, at least temporarily, replace previous in-person requirements. However, that is not true across the board.
This chart breaks down all approved, pending and denied CE credit as of today. We will continue to update this chart as “pending” states either confirm or deny the CE credit available.
We continue to work diligently to finalize available CE credit on a state-by-state basis — many of which are still working through those processes themselves.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Life West Postgraduate & Continuing Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 780-4508.
