APCA conducts an annual audit of a percentage of randomly selected APCA Certificants whose three-year CME period ended in the previous year. Log on 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 March 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, email and First-Class USPS mail. CME submissions must be received in the APCA office by April 30, 2020. Those selected for audit will receive written notification from APCA of their CME audit results by June 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 April 30, 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).
