Accreditation Services

Planning a continuing education activity? 

To get started,

  • Contact the CE office at 501-661-7962 or by email early in the planning process to schedule a consultation.
  • Establish a planning committee based on your target audience.  It is recommended for your activity to have an interprofessional planning committee that represents each member of the targeted audience.  However, OCE will accredit uniprofessional activities that are designed for one profession’s scope of practice.
  • You can find our online application here.  For additional information, check out our Planners Guide, Tools and Resources, and Application Tips.

To avoid a rush fee, submit applications for credit at least 45 days before the activity. Accreditation compliance reviews take time and therefore, the OCE will not review and approve applications received less than 30 days before the activity.
