Continuing Education for Health Care Professionals
Upstate AHEC provides continuing education programs for healthcare professionals who seek licensure and certification credits. Participants throughout the State of South Carolina are eligible to participate in Upstate AHEC trainings.
A wide range of CE courses are available for various healthcare professionals, including Nurses, Physicians, Social Workers, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians and others. For convenience, Upstate’s continuing education programs are offered through three learning methods, live, on-line and video conferencing, and range from 30-minutes to an entire day, depending on the course.
All Continuing Education programs offered by Upstate AHEC are open to both consortium and non-consortium attendees. Membership in the Upstate AHEC Consortium allows all employees of the agency to attend Continuing Education programs free of charge. Continuing Education programs are open to all participants, but consortium members get the experience for less. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.Due to the cost of certain courses, i.e. those where the speaker fee exceeds $1000/day, a reduced fee may be required of consortium attendees.
GHS covers the cost of consortium membership which allows GHS employees to participate as members.
