Important note to Florida licensed laboratory professionals requesting ACCENT® credit: If you would like AACC to report your credits to CE Broker, enter your Florida Department of Health license number into the Demographic Form. You must obtain your credits within 90 days of the AACC Annual Meeting. Credits obtained after 90 days will have to be self-reported to CE Broker.

  2. Indicate if you will be requesting Verification of Participation certificate for ACCENT ® or AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM . (Note: AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM is for physicians only). Then, click on "Proceed to Create Session List".

  3. At "Create Session List" you will create the list of sessions you attended.

  4. For each session, enter the continuing education (CE) code (displayed or announced at the end of the session) then click on "Add".

  5. After entering the CE code for a session and clicking on "Add", check that the correct session is listed under "List of Sessions Attended".

  6. If you attended more than one session, repeat steps #4 and #5.

  7. Once you have finished creating the list of all of the sessions for which you are requesting credit, click on “Finalize Session List”.

  8. At "Finalize List of Sessions", compare the list of sessions to your Continuing Education Recording Form. The following changes can be made at this screen:

    • change the amount of credits being claimed for a session. The amount of credits claimed should be the amount of time you actually spent in the activity.
    • add more sessions
