Respiratory Therapy In-services

American Association for Respiratory Care:

The purpose of the AARC’s Continuing Respiratory Care Education (CRCE) is to accredit continuing educational programs for respiratory therapists. The criteria for accrediting programs are established by the AARC and reflect the continuing education requirements of the Respiratory Care State Boards throughout the United States of America.  One CRCE contact hour is defined as 60 minutes of learning activity. One (1) CRCE contact hour is the minimum awarded.  Examinations are required only for learner directed (nontraditional) programs. The AARC makes the final determination of the number of contact hours awarded.
