Update on PSRC Continuing Education Events
Due to the ongoing Cornavirus pandemic, all PSRC seminars and conferences have been canceled for the remainder of 2020. However, the we understand the need for our members to earn continuing education and we are happy to announce 4 hour live webinars every month for the remainder of the year! In addition, we continue to add recorded lectures to our library as well giving you additional access to continuing education. All live and recorded PSRC lectures are approved for continuing education by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) and can be used towards meeting both the continuing education requirements for renewing your PA State RT License and towards renewing any NBRC credentials with an expiration date.
