ACSM offers many opportunities to earn CECs. One option would be through Approved Providers. ACSM's Education Department reviews programs that meet specific educational guidelines and then recognizes the programs as ACSM Approved Providers. Visit our Approved Providers to earn additional CECs from home, workshops, meetings or conferences.
** If you earned CEC's from an ACSM Approved Provider, these CECs will not appear on your My ACSM page. You should obtain documentation of these CECs from the program organizer and keep the documentation for your records. Please do not send your documentation to ACSM.
An organization DOES NOT have to be listed on the Approved Provider list in order for us to accept their CECs. If the 'event' is directly related to your certification, we will accept it. Typically there is a listing of organizations that award CECs for the event, OR the actual organization that puts on the event will award CECs, we will match that amount.
The general rule is that the CEC equivalency is always 1 = 1, but if the organization uses the decimal system then its .1 = 1 .
If there is any doubt, it typically equates to 1 CEC per hour of participation. Please be sure to keep a copy of the documentation proving your attendance in case you are chosen for an audit in the future.
