A few schools and health care facilities that offer free CRCE courses online are the American Association for Respiratory Care University, Phillips Learning Center, and the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America. These online learning platforms provide course content that conforms to the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program.
The Phillips Learning Center connects respiratory therapists with high-quality courses that are approved by the AARC for professional development and license renewal. Phillips aids in the understanding of applications for new technology that help enhance clinical competency, expertise and patient care.
The NAEPP offers a free course that revolves around its four components of asthma management. The course is structured into a 12-module program that is completed at one's own pace. Therapists earn seven continuing education credits from the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation and the AARC.
The AARC has its own university, which is a Web-based application system that aids in the submission of educational programs for CRCE accreditation. This program also provides seven continuing education credits. The foundational principles of the AARC CRCE program strive to meet the requirements established by the State Boards of Respiratory Care. AARC assures users that each course is planned and overseen by a qualified individual.
