Thanks to everyone who attended the March 1 KRCS MSRC District IV meeting in Kansas City
The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts (KSBHA) was finding that many websites present a video.
A video you could watch it at any time, 2am for example; this presentation is not real time.
Several websites have posted speaker office hours, where you can talk to them.
The websites thought this would make their videos “LIVE”. It does not! This is NOT considered a LIVE CEU!
This practice caused the KSBHA to start watching CEU offerings very closely.
The KSBHA realized many CEU’s are not really live; they have just been labeled live by the website.
The State Guidelines for Continuing Education Credits state: Offerings approved by the American Association
of Respiratory Care. Any licensee may obtain all contact hours from any continuing education offerings
approved by the American Association of Respiratory Care and its state affiliates, subject to the
limitations specified in paragraphs (f)(2) through (f)(8).
The limitations specified in paragraph (f)(2) through (f)(8), state that even if the AARC has approved the CEU,
the state has the discretion to reject the CEUs as they apply to Kansas law.
In the case of these websites, the State does not view their video presentations as a live CEU.
The State interprets “live CEUs” as a presentation where the presenter and the audience are able to
interact in real time – during the presentation.
So to clarify for a CEU to be considered live, it really needs to be LIVE. In real time with the ability
to interact with the presenter.
