Continuing Education Credits
Red Line
This Asthma Educator Institute is designed to meet continuing education requirements for a variety of healthcare professionals. Presenter objectives, qualifications and a certificate of attendance will be available for certified asthma educators, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and others desiring continuing education credits.

Respiratory Care
This program has been designed to provide 12.75 contact hours and meets the requirements of the Indiana Board of Medical Practice for respiratory care practitioners.

AE-C Recertification by Continuing Education
AE-C recertification by continuing education requires that CE applicable to asthma must be approved by a NAECB Recognized Provider. It does not have to be discipline specific nor does it have to come from any specific area of concentration, e.g., nurses may attend an asthma-related respiratory therapy program and use those clock hours for AE-C recertification.
