The interpretive guideline for Standards 2.05/20.09 states that a PD and/or DCE appointed after January 1, 2020, is required to complete it. Others have benefited from taking the course as a refresher but that is optional. This course is designed for full-time key personnel with programs that have at least provisional accreditation.

The training consists of 20 modules of content delivered online via a learning management system that will cover the content areas that will provide the most benefit to the attendee.  The program is set up to mirror an online course.  When the course is completed the attendee will receive a certificate of completion and be awarded 24.0 continuing respiratory care education (CRCE) credits through the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC).

The cost is $275; invoicing will get sent approximately a week before the course begins.
