Are these Category 1 credits?
Yes. Our physician programs are approved for Category 1 AMA credit. The programs may also be used for category 2 B credits. (No certificate is needed nor provided for use for Category 2B credits.) Our dental programs help meet the requirements for many state dental boards, state and local associations and hospital and clinics.
Will my state/association/ accept this activity for credit?
Requirements vary from societies, states and associations. Since criteria vary, participants are advised to check directly with the appropriate board or organization for applicability.
Do I have to submit the test before I receive the next issue?
No, you may submit more than one test at a time, but please pay attention to the expiration date printed on your test. Tests submitted after approval expiration cannot be processed. You have until the end of the expiration month to submit the test.

May I fax my answers?
We are required to keep a copy of the original document. Faxed quizzes will not be processed.
What is “Bubble”?
Fill in the circle provided for answers using a #2 pencil, blue or black ink. The grading scanner will not pick up any other type marking on your tests.
If I fail, how many times may I take it over?
You may take the test as many times as needed.
How will I know if I fail?
If tests are mailed in and a passing score is not reached a letter and replacement test will be mailed to the participant. If a test is taken online, immediate results will be sent.
