The Asthma Educator Institute™ (AEI) is a three partial-day preparatory course for individuals that want to implement asthma guidelines-based care and those qualified to take the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) examination. The AEI was developed with experts in the field of asthma and reflects the Expert Panel Report 3: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma.

AEI is a professional education course that targets frontline healthcare professionals, such as: nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, other licensed or credentialed healthcare professionals, community health workers and educators with 1000+ direct hours of asthma education eligible to sit for the national asthma certification (AE-C) exam. This course is also a great refresher for current certified asthma educator's preparing for recertification, and also includes approved CEU/CME credit to recertify without retaking the exam.

The curriculum aligns with the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) Candidate Handbook and includes case reviews, hands-on skills demonstrations and practice.

Note: This program is designed as a prep course for the NBRC Exam, but there is no requirement that participants sign up for the exam after completing the course. Any professional interested in gaining better skills and understanding of asthma self-management and implementing asthma guidelines-based care would benefit from this training.

The upcoming Asthma Educator Institute will be held virtually in a live-stream format. This event will be hosted in the Mountain time zone.
