ASET Continuing Education Units (ASET CEUs) are awarded to programs who apply to ASET for this designation and who maintain the highest quality of education for the profession. Attendees are then awarded ASET CEUs for the number of hours in which they participate in a particular program. These ASET CEUs can then be used to document continuing education for recertification or professional development within a hospital setting. ASET CEUs are recognized by ABRET and BRPT for recertification.
For more information and details on ASET-CEUs, review the FAQs.
