Maintaining your APCA certifications helps you demonstrate up-to-date knowledge and core clinical skills throughout your career.
The pathway of maintaining your certification is comprised of:
- Paying the APCA annual renewal fee by December 31 of each year;
- Attesting to APCA rules and policies;
- Earning your minimum required number of APCA-accepted continuing medical education (CME) credits during your three-year CME period; and
- Following applicable Recertification requirements.
Tools and resources:
- Upload your CMEs to the CME Bank (optional)
- Manage your personal information and maintain your certification with MY APCA
- Review the CME Audit process if you are randomly selected for an audit
- Complete your Recertification assessments
- Visit Certificant Support for additional information
* Note: If you are an APCA physician who holds ARDMS certification(s), you must follow the Recertification process for your ARDMS certification(s). Recertification requirements have not yet been developed for APCA certifications.
