Continuing Education Credits (CEC)

Continuing Medical Education (CME), also known as Continuing Education Credits (CECs), also known as Continuing Education Units (CEUs) refers to a specific form of continuing education (CE) that helps those in the medical field maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas of their field. These activities may take place as live events, written publications, online programs, audio, video, or other electronic media. Content for these programs is developed, reviewed, and delivered by faculty who are experts in their individual and collective fields. For many years, those professionally licensed in the United States and Canada, have been required by their association or by their state to maintain their license in some way. In recent years, HCFA (Health Care Finance Administration) has increasingly pushed for professional licensing requirements for much of the personnel involved in patient care, including nursing, physical therapy, etc., and more recently, coding and billing. Recommended credit hours vary from 12 to 40 per year. Credits are earned at one to two credits per hour, based on the type of learning activity. Legal transcriptionists in some states are now required to be certified and licensed, as well as to maintain CECs annually. Court reporters in some states are now required to consider only certified transcriptionists in their secretarial pools. Various licensure regulations are in place on an individual state basis on paralegal licensure.
