What is a podcast?
A podcast is an audio-only MP3 file based on a live event. You can simply hit play and listen to the file on your computer. Or, you can download the MP3 file to save on your computer and then transfer it to your MP3 player (i.e. iPod) to listen to the recording. You may also store this file in your iTunes podcast library by clicking the iTunes Subscribe. Please note there is also a handout to download that provides a visual reference for the audio file; we strongly recommend you download the handouts in order to have all course materials available to you.
Can I earn CEUs/Hours for a podcast?
YES! The vast majority of podcasts are offered for CEUs/Hours, but you must verify which courses are offered for credit and by which association. This information is available on the course details page. Please note that once a podcast is selected, you have 30 days past the selection date to take the CE Test, complete the course evaluation and earn CEUs/Hours.

It is at the discretion of the Presenter if there will be any handouts for a given course; therefore, not all podcasts will have handouts that can be downloaded and printed out. Handouts are typically in PDF format. Click here to download and install Adobe Reader (free).
