To help ensure that those individuals credentialed by ABC are able to satisfy the MCE requirements, course providers may apply in advance to ABC for continuing education credits for courses relevant to orthotics, prosthetics, pedorthics, post-mastectomy, orthotic fitting and therapeutic shoe fitting.
To find preapproved courses relevant to your credential, please select from either:
Live Courses or Distance Learning
For programs that have not been applied for in advance to ABC, individuals may apply on their own behalf by submitting a Category II form along with their proof of attendance and copy of the agenda/program.
To ensure that ABC credentialed individuals are maintaining their certification through appropriate learning activities relevant to their ABC credential, ABC will award discipline specific credits, when appropriate and feasible, to Category I approved programs. For those individuals not credentialed by ABC in the approved discipline(s), Category II credits may be awarded. Although ABC will acknowledge content outside of a scope of practice, each credentialed individual is required to earn the majority of their continuing education credits on content specifically related to their ABC credential.
