Requests must be submitted through the above program submission link PRIOR to opening registration or at least 30 days before the program date.

Please submit final rosters in a timely manner. Ideally no more than 2-3 weeks post-program. This allows time to reach out to any participant whose credit may have been rejected to correct their information and resubmit credit. ACPE requires credit to be uploaded within 60 days of the program date. After that date, they close the program and no credit is able to be uploaded.

Please let us know of changes that occur in your program has been approved. Upon approval, you were sent an Activity Description Form (ADF) outlining the details submitted to ACPE for accreditation. If any of the details listed have changed, that information will need to be updated with ACPE as well. These changes must be made prior to the program date, but will not require a new ACPE activity number.

Each program is identified at a specific competency level, knowledge, application, and practice. There are certain expectations and verbs that should be used for each of those competencies. If an objective was updated/revised, it was most likely phrased in a way that was not associated with that competency level.

No, if a program has already been approved, and the title, objectives, number of hours are the same you can request the next session date be added to that activity by emailing Austin Companion directly.
