What are the System Requirements?
How secure is the purchase transaction?
Our transactions are processed by a PCI-Compliant Level 1 e-commerce application service provider. As a Level 1 Service Provider, they comply with a rigorous set of standards set forth by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). These standards require:

What is your data breach response plan?

How long do I have to complete a course?
You have one year from the date of purchase to complete your CE course. Once complete, you will have access to your certificate indefinitely through the "My Transcript" page of the site.
Do I have to complete a course at a single sitting?
No, you do not have to complete your course at a single sitting. You can login as many times as you want to review the material, complete your course, or print an additional certificate or letter of completion.
What is a passing score on the CE test?
You must score 80% on the CE test. If you don't pass the first time, you can re-take the test. You can also print out a copy of the test prior to reading the material. The test is not meant to be punitive. The purpose of the test is to reinforce the learning. After passing the CE test, you must complete the course evaluation to get your certificate.
How do I print my certificate? I've finished my course and completed the test and evaluation.
Go to athealth.com/continuing-education and click on Sign In in the top navigation menu. Sign in as a Returning Participant using your email and password. Once you are signed in, click on My Transcript in the main purple navigation menu. Scroll down to select the course you need and click on the Print Certificate button to receive your certificate. If you are a psychologist and need a letter of completion, click on the Print Letter of Completion link.
Can I take the same course twice?
Yes, however, keep in mind that your licensing board may not accept the same course twice. If you want to retake a course, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get your current account set up to re-purchase the course(s).
Can I take a course using the same e-mail and CE account as someone else?
No. You will need to have your own CE account and use your own e-mail address. If you use another person's CE account, their professional information will be replaced by your information, and we will have no way of knowing who completed which courses. In the event that one of you is audited, we would not be able to support your continuing education with your licensing board.
Do you report CE credits to CE Broker or other State Organizations?
No. At Health does not report CE credits to CE Broker or state organizations/boards.
It report credits to CE Broker, just follow these simple steps:

As you answer the questions, be sure to click Continue to advance the submission form
- Once you reach the Attachments page, you are almost done. Attach your certificate of completion, or select 'Maintain Your Own Documentation' if available, then click Continue
- Now you are ready to submit your CE! On the final page, you will attest that everything you have answered is true, then simply click Submit CE to complete the reporting process
Your self-reported CE posts to your CE Broker course history immediately, which means your board can see what has been reported as well.
If your state board requires that the CE Provider submits the course certificates, you must inform us in writing (along with the necessary reporting guidelines/documents) a minimum of 14 days before the deadline to allow us plenty of time to provide your board with the required documentation.
