If you were initially certified by American Medical Technologists on or after January 1, 2006, or you are reactivating your certification after three or more years of inactivity, you'll need to participate in AMT's Certification Continuation Program (CCP). This means that you'll need to earn continuing education points through AMT-approved sources to renew your certification. MLS, MLT, CLC, and AML certifications need to earn 45 continuing education points over a three-year period in order to renew their AMT certifications.
Because LabCE awards ASCLS P.A.C.E.® credits for completing any of our 165 courses, LabCE's courses are accepted by AMT towards your CCP recertification requirements under the category of "Professional Education". AMT's continuing education points are equal to ASCLS P.A.C.E.® contact hours. For example, if you complete LabCE's Cerebrospinal Fluid CE course, you'll earn 3 P.A.C.E.® contact hours, which equals 3 continuing education points towards your AMT recertification (CCP) requirement of 45 continuing education points.
Since LabCE offers over 239 hours of continuing education, you'll be able to choose from a wide variety of courses to meet your AMT recertification requirements.
Even if you're not required to participate in American Medical Technologists' recertification program, you can still use LabCE to fulfill state continuing education requirements and to stay current on the latest developments in clinical laboratory science.
