Professionalism Webinars

Professionalism Webinar Recordings Available to Members

A valuable benefit of Academy membership is free and unlimited access to the Council on Professionalism’s entire—and growing—library of professionalism webinars, which date back to September 2007. Academy members can earn continuing education (CE) credits by listening to these pre-recorded webinars. These credits can be counted toward the annual required three hours of continuing education on professionalism topics, as detailed in the U.S. Qualification Standards (Section 2.2). Professionalism credits under the U.S. Qualification Standards are not required to be from “organized activities”; so while listening to recorded webinars will not count as an organized activity it still will satisfy the professionalism requirement.
