Continuing Medical Education Credits

Requirements for Awarding and Earning CME Credits

The AAPA Review Panel has awarded 79.25 hours of Category 1 CME credit for the 2021 Education Forum, with nearly every education session eligible. This year, you can earn CME by either attending live or viewing the recorded/ on-demand CME session(s) at your convenience, any time from October 11-December 9, 2021.

Please note: You can only earn CME credit once per session for either participating in the CME activity live or viewing the on-demand recording at a later date.

On-demand sessions will be available for CME credit from October 11 to December 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET. After this cutoff date, you will no longer be able to earn CME credit for the 2021 PAEA Education Forum.


How Do You Claim Your CME Certificate?

Each live or on-demand session on the virtual platform includes a link to an evaluation that must be completed by the attendee upon viewing or participating in the entire session. You must complete a separate evaluation for each CME session that you participate in. On-demand sessions will be available for CME credit from October 11 to December 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET. After this cutoff date, you will no longer be able to earn CME credit for the 2021 PAEA Education Forum.

Please note: Updates to awarding AAPA Category 1 CME credit were made by AAPA. These changes directly impact CME sessions (live or on-demand) for live conferences. As of April 2021, CME sessions (live or on-demand) are now available to attendees for up to 60 days. For more information, visit AAPA CME Accreditation.

When Can You Expect to Receive Your CME Certificate?

After December 9 (and after you have successfully completed an evaluation for each CME session for which you plan to receive CME credit), you can expect to receive your CME certificate via email by December 30. Your CME certificate will be sent from forum@PAEAonline.org and will include the number of Category 1 AAPA CME credits you have been awarded for live and/or on-demand session(s).

How Long Will the Platform Be Available After the Forum?

If you plan to earn Category 1 CME credit, you must view any sessions and complete session evaluations by December 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET. After December 9, you will still be able to access the 2021 PAEA Education Forum platform and peruse any sessions but not for CME credit. The platform will be available until March 18, 2022, after which time you will no longer be able to access and log into the virtual Forum platform.

How Do You Log CME Credits After You Receive Your CME Certificate?

After you receive the email containing your CME certificate, CME must be logged with the NCCPA. CME credits earned are not passed on to NCCPA automatically; they must still be logged through your NCCPA record at www.nccpa.net.
