ATTENTION AMT MT and MLT Members:
Beginning September 1, 2014, the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel will no longer accept courses that are less than 1 hour in length. After September 1, any AMT courses with less than 1 hour will automatically be expired. Florida Licensees that previously completed these courses will still be able to receive credit for them, but after September 1 you will no longer have these accepted.
CE Broker sent AMT this notification this week and we will no longer put STEP Articles that are less than 1 point (hour) into CE Broker. If you had previously had a STEP attached to your record it will stay but moving forward no course less than 1 hour will be accepted.
AMT wanted you to be aware of this change and so that you understand why any STEP article that was less than 1 hour will no longer be acceptable by CE Broker.
AMT strongly advocates lifelong learning as part of a member's personal and professional growth, and in fact requires its newer members, through the Certification Continuation Program (CCP), to acquire a specific number of points in continuing education (CE), or other acceptable avenues, in order to maintain certification. AMT offers a variety of educational opportunities for its members, including those listed below.
AMT also offers AMTraxTM -- the new online tracking system that helps members easily track the points they have acquired over time. AMTrax is totally paperless and provides you with 24/7 access to your profile. (Click here) to find out more about AMTrax.
1. STEP Online
STEP Online is a continuing education program keyed to scholarly articles, which appear in the Journal of Continuing Education Topics & Issues. The Journal is published three times a year (January, April and August). Each article includes a short test which can be submitted for manual scoring or taken online through AMT's website. The same articles and tests are available to all AMT members on the AMT website along with past articles and tests. The Journal is mailed to all current AMT-certified members as a membership benefit.
