To be a recognized provider, education must have a clear purpose and relevant learning objectives. Educational activities must be current, technically accurate and developed by individuals qualified with respect to educational activity development and specific content. Educational activities are to be delivered as live activities and/or distance learning and each activity will be classified as core technical content, business practices or ethics. All courses will include an evaluation to assess whether learning objectives were met and must be 1 PDH in length.
“IECA offers a variety of opportunities to attain continuing education credit,” Wilson stated. “We’ve looked for additional avenues for our educational offerings to meet more and more needs of members. Being an RCEP provider is the next step in that evolution.”
