Pre-Approved CEUs

The Medical Association of Billers grants prior approval for the continuing education units (CEUs) required to maintain the CMBSTM certification. CEUs must be earned during the 12 months from the date of certification. CEUs are not awarded for any class work completed prior to certification.

For example if a student takes a PowerWeekend™ June 15-16 and passes their CMBSTM certification examination this class does not count towards their annual CEU requirements. CEUs obtained from June 17 through June 16 of the following year count towards the 12 required annual CEUs.

In order to obtain full CEUs classes must have prior approval. Certified billers may request credit for non-approved CEUs by sending the class curriculum and grade to MAB. MAB offers no guarantee for classes which are not pre-approved. Classes which do not have prior approval will be awarded a maximum of ½ CEU per hour.
