Unfortunately no. We repeatedly asked this very question as we were moving through the process. Educational activities (like our semester programs) must be certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ before students begin participating in the activity (semester programs).
In 2020, we will be working diligently to achieve CME qualification for our individual Deep Dive Clinical Courses (DDCC) and our AFMC Recertification process. These developments would allow our students who have already passed one or both AFMC exams an opportunity to earn CME units for their continued SAFM studies.
National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coaches (NBC-HWCs)
Yes. Completed and documented education may only be utilized for recertification after the date of your initial board certification. If you have successfully passed the national board exam offered through the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) and are still within your current, required 3-year recertification window, SAFM’s semester course programs (Core 101 and Advanced 202) may be eligible for use in fulfilling your CE requirements. Please consult the NBHWC Recertification Handbook or the NBHWC team at https://nbhwc.org/ for details regarding your personal situation. SAFM’s NBHWC CEP Number is 100159.
Other Non-Physician Health Professionals
Please consult your accrediting body to determine equivalency and CE fulfillment guidelines. We will be working diligently throughout 2021 to become directly recognized by accrediting bodies for other healthcare modalities as well, to make the process of fulfilling CE requirements as easy as possible for all of our students.
