Earn up to 20 CE Credits

Get what you need online, in one weekend, as you immerse yourself in new research and inspiring content!

With the transition of the WAVE 2020 to a virtual format, Life West will offer a wide range of Continuing Education credits through live presentations during the weekend of the WAVE 2020, Aug. 21-23, 2020. Our entire collection of WAVE speaker content will be available on-demand.

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 or (510) 780-4508.
