As a provider accredited by the ACCME, ACOEM is responsible for ensuring our education is fair and balanced and that any clinical content presented supports safe, effective patient care. As such, ACOEM must include an original release date and a termination (expiration) date on products. Content must either be reviewed once every three years or expire after three years, which is why courses have an expiration date. This date not only denotes when the course will no longer be available to new users but also includes the final date to claim AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. While there is a possibility that a course will be renewed for an additional three years – and a new expiration date posted – this will not be determined until a review is conducted.
A course that has already been purchased but exceeds the expiration date can still be completed and/or reviewed, but a learner may no longer be able to claim the AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ associated with the course.
