The Board has received enquiries from those who serve in various hyperbaric and diving administrative leadership positions regarding the awarding of CEU’s for such participation. Examples include membership on NFPA/ASME/PVHO committees, membership on the UHMS Safety Committee, and serving as a UHMS Facility Accreditation Survey Team member.
All of these activities hold importance related to the safety and effectiveness of undersea medicine and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The Board will, therefore, award continuing education credits, as follows:
For the above noted committees, CHTs, CHRNs and CHT-Vs, will earn one Category A credit for every hour, or part thereof, that such a committee is in session. Attendance at these meetings will need to be verified by each respective chair person, by email to Board headquarters. Credit hours for serving in these capacities will be capped at nine (9) for each respective (CHT/CHT-V/CHRN) recertification period.
For those who undertake a UHMS facility accreditation survey, the Board will award six (6) Category A credits. Confirmation of participation must be provided to the Board by the UHMS Hyperbaric Facility Accreditation Director. Because the survey process is very much template driven, this credit award is a one-time process.
Please let Board headquarters know if you are involved in any other such administrative and oversight functions.
