How do I get CEUs for the CANS certification training?
To obtain Continuing Education credits following completion of training, you must first pass the CANS Certification exam and complete the on-line evaluation survey after the exam. Please note that you will have up to 90 days to apply for credits, however you will NOT be able to return to this survey. The survey is required for Continuing Education credits, so it is important that if you anticipate applying for credits you must complete this survey. To obtain Continuing Education credits you must visit the Berkshire Area Health Education Center (AHEC) website. You may obtain Continuing Education credits one time only for the CANS training and exam.
