Given the concerns about in-person courses during social distancing, we wanted to share an existing tool that allows approved CE courses to be taught online. If you have been approved to provide a course in-person you may provide that course via video conferencing or other online platform without re-applying. The course being taught online must contain the same content as the approved in-person course, follow the same time estimates as the in-person course, and be taught by an approved instructor.
