AEU Credits Available for CASC
No matter what industry a professional works in, most are expected to continue learning about their field and doing their jobs to the best of their abilities.
But for those working in the ever-evolving ASC industry, it’s encouraged – and often required – to perform specific activities to make sure they’re gaining relevant knowledge and staying current with industry developments.
Stand Out and Stay Ahead: CASC® Credential
One way that many in ASC management roles distinguish themselves in the industry is by pursuing the Certified Administrator Surgery Center (CASC®) certification credential, administered by the Board of Ambulatory Surgery Certification (BASC). The CASC® designation, as well as the supplemental Continuing Education requirements, encourages achievers to regularly seek a more comprehensive understanding of the skills needed to successfully manage an ASC and verifies their commitment to the industry.
Once certified, the CASC® credential will be valid for three years; however, to maintain it, the Certificant must obtain and submit Continuing Education Hours based on the following CASC® criteria:
All Certificants are required to obtain at least six Administrator Education Units (AEUs) in each of the five major content areas – Financial, Regulatory/Legal, Human Resources, Quality Management, and Patient Care – for a total of 30 AEUs in a three-year recertification cycle.
The AEUs can be obtained at various times throughout the three years, but all credits must be submitted by December 31st of the Certificant’s personal Three-Year Recertification Cycle, or else the credential will be revoked. In addition, no self-reported Continuing Education Hours will be accepted – meaning AEUs can only be obtained from an approved provider. That’s where SIS comes in.
