In efforts to support our Certificants and ease their burden during these unprecedented times, please note the following for the audit of CME periods ending on December 31, 2019:
1. The CME Audit selection process was delayed by one month; selection took place mid-April.
2. The CME submission due date was extended to August 1, 2020 (normally the due date is April 30th). All required CME documentation must be received by that date.
3. All CME documentation must be uploaded to the CME Bank. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical APCA office is closed and staff are working 100% remotely with no way to access documentation mailed to the office.
4. Results will be sent by August 2020 and posted in MY APCA.
If you are unable to complete the above noted requirements (ie. unable to upload the required CME documentation into your CME Bank), please send an email to CMEAuditAppeal@APCA.org for guidance and assistance.
APCA conducts an annual audit of a percentage of randomly selected APCA Certificants whose three-year CME period ended
in the previous year. Log in to MY APCA to view your current three-year CME period and check the status of CMEs you are required to earn by the end of your three-year CME period.
In April 2020, APCA will begin the CME Audit process for Certificants with the three-year CME period of January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2019*. APCA notifies the randomly selected APCA Certificants from the 2017-2019 three-year CME period of the CME Audit via MY APCA and email. Those selected for audit will receive written notification from APCA of their CME audit results by August 2020. Results will also be posted on MY APCA.
If you are selected for CME Audit and failed to submit the minimum required number of APCA-accepted CMEs by July 31, 2020, your certification(s) will be revoked. If you do not meet the CME requirements, please follow the CME Audit Reinstatement procedures.
If you earned your first certification in 2016, your three-year CME period began the day you attained the first certification and includes any time that remained in 2016 plus the next three years (January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2019).
