What is a CEC?

A Continuing Education Credit (CEC) is one contact hour or 50 minutes of education programming or instruction (breaks and meals excluded).  All CECs required for the renewal period must be earned the previous year. CECs submitted for your credential renewal may date back no more than 12-months before your credential renewal date. Continuing education credits are needed for all NAAEI credentials that require annual renewal and are required to maintain AIME Membership. This includes CAM, CALP, CAPS, CAS and AIME.
