CE Hours Audit is Underway

ASHI staff is charged with conducting an audit of Continuing Education (CE) hours every January. A list of ACIs and Associates is randomly generated from our database, including at least one member from each chapter. The members on the list will be notified how to verify the hours they’ve claimed.
Inspectors who fail the audit are placed on administrative suspension.
