Pre-Approval Program for Continuing Education Courses

As a value-added service to our membership, the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) has a mechanism in place for pre-approving educational programs for continuing education credit. Programs facilitated by association members, member banks, and outside organizations are eligible for consideration.

 
The advantages for a participant are:
  1. The number of Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) is clearly defined;
  2. The Subject Category and Learning Method are pre-defined as outlined in the Certification Handbook; and
  3. A list of participants in a pre-approved course is sent directly to the AATB corporate office to be entered into a database, alleviating the need for individual participant submissions during their re-certification cycle.
 
The advantages for those presenting pre-approved programs are:
  1. Opportunity to utilize the AATB logo on promotional materials associated with their pre-approved program (for a defined length of time) and
  2. Pre-approved programs gain more visibility/attention and are usually an easier mechanism for participants to obtain CEU’s.
 
Getting a program pre-approved is relatively easy. Simply contact the AATB office (Maggie Deuel deuelm@aatb.org) 703.229.1037 for a “Pre-approved Education Program Information Application”. The AATB office can assist you with any questions you might have in completing the necessary paperwork and/or submitting the required administrative fee. Review of applications is completed within 30 days from the time of receipt in the AATB office.
