General CEC related frequently asked questions.
Where are my Inter-Scorer Reliabily (ISR) CECs? My July CEC is not in my AAST transcript. The Inter-Scorer Reliability (ISR) program is an AASM program, and no longer offers AAST CECs. For more information please contact the AASM.
How often will I receive my CEC Transcript from the AAST? AAST members can retrieve their CEC Transcript at any time by logging in to the AAST website and clicking My CEC Portal under Additional Options in their profile.
Why are some of the continuing education credits which I have earned not listed on the AAST Transcript? The AAST updates the CEC Transcript based on student lists received from educational providers whose programs were approved by the AAST CEC Program. AAST CECs are only tracked for AAST members in good standing during the time they are members. Please allow 90 days after the completion of an educational program for your AAST CEC Transcript to be updated.
Why isn’t the educational program that I attended that offered CME, CRCE, or CEU credits not listed on my AAST CEC Transcript? The AAST CEC Transcript only lists educational programs that were approved for AAST CECs. The AAST tracks credits from those educational providers who applied for AAST CECs in advance of the session/workshop date. A number of credit hours for each educational program is determined by the AAST. Educational providers are required to list the number of credit hours approved by the AAST in the program and submit the AAST CEC Student List of attendees.
Why isn’t the educational program I attended (i.e. AAST Annual Meeting) listed on the AAST CEC Transcript I received? If you were not an AAST member at the time you registered or if you registered using a different name than appears on your membership account, your AAST CECs from attending the approved educational program may not appear on your transcript. You may contact email@example.com with proof of program attendance to get the certificate added to your transcript.
Why aren’t my new AAST CECs showing up on my ABSM account?
Starting July 1, 2017, AAST CECs are no longer linked to the ABSM accounts of AAST members. You will need to update continuing education credits manually to their website.
What happens to credits that are not on my AAST CEC Transcript? Do I lose them? After attending an educational program approved for continuing education credit, you should have received a letter or certificate from the educational provider verifying your attendance and number of credits earned. These letters and certificates are accepted as proof of credits and can be submitted to the BRPT when you recertify. Programs must be approved for AAST CECs in order for them to be added to an AAST CEC Transcript. Programs not approved for AAST CECs may still be summited to the BRPT as long as they qualify for credit. Please contact the BRPT for more information on acceptable credits.
Can I turn in certificates of completion from other educational programs that I attended in the current year to receive AAST CECs? The AAST only awards CECs to educational providers whose programs meet the AAST CEC standards and were approved by the association in advance of the session/workshop date. Credits earned through AAST CEC Program will count towards RPSGT recertification. The AAST is unable to process individual requests after the educational program is completed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to check if a program was approved for AAST CECs.
What should I do with my certificates of completion that provide credit hours (CME, CEU, CRCE) approved by other organizations and are accepted towards my recertification requirements by BRPT? Keep those certificates on file and submit them to BRPT along with your AAST Transcript when your recertification date is due.
