As an AAB member or ABB Diplomate or Certificant, you can view continuing education (CE) in your account, add non PEER-approved programs for CE, view your current recording period and print a listing of your CE records.
To assist you in documenting your CE credits, AAB/ABB maintains a computerized CE recording service called PEER (Professional Enrichment Educational Renewal).
If an educational program is approved by PEER, the program sponsor will submit your CE Recording Form to the PEER office and the contact hours earned will be documented in your account.
Non PEER-Approved Programs
Educational programs not approved by PEER may also be acceptable for CE credit by submitting them online. Log in to your CE account, click the word, "Add," to get to the page, Document Non PEER-Approved Programs. Enter the name of the program or select from the droplist, and then type in the required information such as location, sponsor, contact hours, and course date. For more information see General Guidelines for Documenting Continuing Education Credit.
Lastly, you will be asked how you will be providing the following information to the PEER office: certificate of attendance, course outline/agenda and any miscellaneous documentation. This documentation can be uploaded, faxed or mailed. After the PEER office receives all the necessary documentation the program will be reviewed and the status (approved or not approved) will be posted to your account. Please allow 30 days from submission of documentation for the status to display in your account.
We recommend that you download a CE form from the AAB/ABB websites before you attend a non PEER-approved program and have it signed. In the event you do not receive a certificate of attendance, this CE form can be used to verify your attendance.
In your online CE Account, you can view and print a listing of your CE records.
Hard copy CE transcripts may be obtained for a $15 transcript fee. Requests for these transcripts must be submitted in writing to the PEER office.
All ABB Diplomates (Directors) and Certificants (Managers, Consultants, and Supervisors) are required to document 24 contact hours of acceptable continuing education every two years.
