Use this process document to obtain an AAST user ID, and consider providing to all of your attendees at the time of registration in order for your attendees to locate their AAST user ID, create an AAST guest account, or join AAST as a member.

Attendance Reporting & Filing Fees
AAST Student Lists must be submitted within 45 calendar days after an Educational Program is held. Within 45 days, an activity organizer is required to report attendance by uploading the following requirements for each attendee that wishes to claim AAST CECs: [Program ID, AAST ID, First Name, Last Name, Completion Date.] Once attendance is reported, organizers are required to pay an automated filing fee for your program in order to report and issue AAST CECs to both AAST members and guests. The filing fee is $5.00 per AAST member and $10.00 per guest attended.
For more instructions, login to your Educational Provider account and visit the Programs page.
