Q. Are copies of the certificates of attendance at continuing education programs (CME) required to be obtained and placed in the credentialing file as proof of attendance?
Updated | November 24, 2008
A. Documentation of attendance can be done in several different ways, including but not limited to:
- obtaining copies of program certificates
- obtaining a copy of the information submitted with a license renewal application when CME’s are required by the state
- obtaining an attestation statement from the Licensed Independent Practitioner which attests to his/her attendance at CME programs that relate to their area of practice, with the stipulation that proof of attendance and program content will be submitted upon request.
