Certification

AIHA does not track instruction and presentation points for authors, instructors, or speakers. Full attendance and participation is required to earn credit; partial credit is not awarded. Questions regarding certification may be directed to AIHA’s Education Team at eduassistant@aiha.org.

AIHA maintains attendance records for seven years. Individuals are responsible for retaining all documentation for future reference and/or certification audits. AIHA charges a $50 replacement fee for all documentation (prior to 2010) verifying attendance. Read more about replacing lost documentation.

ABIH CM credit can be given for attendance to Stewardship 2016 sessions as well.
