ASCLS P.A.C.E.® Credits

Does LabCE provide the CE credits I need?

Chances are, yes.

LabCE offers American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS) Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education® (P.A.C.E.®) credits for all 85 LabCE courses. P.A.C.E.® credits are widely recognized in the clinical laboratory profession and can be used to fulfill most continuing education requirements. P.A.C.E.® credits are appropriate for CLIA '88 recommendations, state licensure, certification agencies and employers. LabCE is P.A.C.E.® provider number #578 (MediaLab, Inc.).

P.A.C.E.® credits are accepted by:

P.A.C.E.® credits are also accepted by all states that require continuing education for laboratory license renewal:

  • California (12 CE hours required every year)
  • Florida (amount varies by license type) - Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel credits, also provided by LabCE
  • Louisiana (12 CE hours required every year)
  • Montana (14 CE hours required every year)
  • Nevada (10 CE hours required every year)
  • New York (12 CE hours required every year)
  • North Dakota (20 CE hours required every two years)
  • Rhode Island (30 CE hours required every two years)
  • Tennessee (24 CE hours required every two years)
  • West Virginia (10 CE hours required every year)

States not listed either do not require clinical laboratory personnel to be licensed by the state or do not require continuing education as part of the licensing, certification, or renewal process (Georgia, Hawaii). However, residents of all states may still need to complete continuing education for AMT, ASCP, or employer requirements and recertifications.

LabCE's courses may also be a source of applicable activity hours for the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) Professional Portfolio, depending on your individual learning goals.

In addition to earning P.A.C.E. credits®, you'll also be able to earn Florida credits, which satisfy the requirements of the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel. Subscribers that provide a Florida license number will have their Florida credits reported directly to CEBroker, Florida's computerized system for tracking continuing education. LabCE also offers several Florida-specific courses required of all CLS licensees, including HIV Safety, Laws and Rules of the Florida Board, and Medical Error Prevention.
