Pre-Approval Program for Continuing Education Courses

As a value-added service to our membership, the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) has a mechanism in place for pre-approving educational programs for continuing education credit. Programs facilitated by association members, member banks, and outside organizations are eligible for consideration.

The advantages for a participant are:
  1. The number of Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) is clearly defined;
  2. The Subject Category and Learning Method are pre-defined as outlined in the Certification Handbook; and
  3. A list of participants in a pre-approved course is sent directly to the AATB corporate office to be entered into a database, alleviating the need for individual participant submissions during their re-certification cycle.
Getting a program pre-approved is relatively easy. Simply contact the AATB office ( at 703 229-1033 for a “Pre-approved Education Program Information Application”. The AATB office can assist you with any questions you might have in completing the necessary paperwork. Review of applications is completed within 30 days from the time of receipt in the AATB office.
