Become a Pre-Approved CE Provider

Organizations providing public health related continuing education activities are encouraged to apply to become pre-approved providers for CPH recertification credits. By becoming a pre-approved provider, you can increase participation at your continuing education events, such as conferences, webinars, and/or courses.

NBPHE advertises the pre-approved provider events to our CPHs through LinkedIn, Facebook, E-mail Blasts and through our CPH Recertification Portal. Many of our CPHs take advantage of the pre-approved events, and NBPHE will report to you how many active CPHs reported attending your continuing education events.
