Criteria and Processes for Determining Proposed Programs’ CE-Eligibility
Acceptable programs must adhere to the definition of continuing education in that they improve service to the public and enhance contributions to the profession.

Determination of eligibility is not made on the basis of topic alone. The responsibility is on the applicant to adequately establish the bridge between program content and the elements of the criteria. The more distant a topic appears from core disciplinary knowledge, the greater the responsibility of the sponsor to demonstrate the connection to improvement of services to the public and contributions to the profession.
The CE Committee will use the Standards and Criteria for Approval of Sponsors of Continuing Education to evaluate proposals. In so doing, they will employ the following evaluative steps:
