Receive Your ACHE Credit

Two question have come up recently by the AHCE Membership:

  • What are the differences between the two ACHE Continuing Education Credits for ACHE membership?
  • How do I get Credit for the Programs I attend?

The Continuing Education Units for ACHE are necessary for recertification of your ACHE status. The primary CEU Credits, formally known as Category One (I) credits, are now referred to as Face-to-Face Education Credits. The other category of CEU Credits, formally known as Category Two (II) credits, are now referred to as Qualified Education Credits. The major difference between these two continuing education credits are that the Face-to-Face credits must be earned at programs that are sanctioned or accredited by the college. The Qualified Education credits can be those programs which are subject matter focused in health care but are not required to be approved or accredited by the ACHE on an an individual basis. Here is ACHE's definition:

    "Continuing education credit is earned by attending courses that address a topic directly related to management practice and are offered by organizations other than ACHE."

Both categories of credit are important for your recertification and can be verified through the ACHE website. The Face-to-Face Credits are automatically entered into your membership profile by the ACHE after you attend the approved education seminar or program. To receive the Qualified Education Credits, you must enter those individually within your membership profile.

The following steps can be used to ensure that you get credit for those programs that you attend:

  • Sign into My ACHE @ https://www.ache.org/secure-login/login.cfm
  • If signing in on the ACHE General Web Site, go to the top and click on My ACHE
  • On My ACHE, in the left column, click on ACHE Qualified Education Credit
  • Click on ACHE Qualified Education Credit Hours - Add
  • Enter the information requested, such as the Sponsoring Organization, the Title of the Program and the date and total credit hours (Program Time/Length)
  • Click on submit

Remember, the Qualified Education Credit Hours use a One (1) to One (1) ratio, which means a one-hour of continuing qualified education equals one credit for the ACHE Qualified Education Credits.

If you should need assistance, contact either the ACHE Program Office or your local chapter Education Committee Chairman.
