Policy on Continuing Education Post-Tests

It is the policy of the American College Health Association that when a post-test is required upon completion of a continuing education activity, participants must receive a passing grade of 80%. If participants receive a grade lower than 80%, they will be given the opportunity to re-take the post-test one time. If they receive 80% or higher the second time, they will be awarded continuing education credits/contact hours for the activity. We encourage participants to complete the post-test and evaluation form immediately after viewing the download. Those with a passing grade of 80% on the post-test will receive their CE certificate electronically within two weeks.
