An Asset to Healthcare Professionals and Educational Providers – The New CE (Broker) Course Search

On November 1st, 2011 we unveiled our new and improved continuing education Course Search.  We created a new look and feel and added a number of new features, designed to make the search more helpful to healthcare professionals in FL and nurses in DC.

*The CE Broker Course Search Guarantee: All courses listed in our Course Search have been pre-screened and will count towards your profession’s renewal requirements.  These courses will also automatically be reported to your records within 90 days.

Users now have a number of search options, which can be used to narrow results.  First, we ask for “Course Type” where you select “Live” or “Self Study” – self study courses are taken at home and often online.  Then you may choose to search for a particular educational provider, course name, or most importantly Subject Area.

After you click “Begin Search” the courses that fit your search criteria will display.  You will notice a new column: Price.  The providers of the CE courses may now enter a price for each of their courses.  It will take some time for providers to update all of their offerings with a course price as some offer thousands of different CE activities, but it is our hope that eventually all courses will show a price.

**Important Note to educational providers: Your courses will be more visible to users if you add a price to your course details

We have also included a number of “Sort By” features.  You can organize your search results by Course or Provider Name, CE Hours, Price, or Popularity.

The improvements to the Course Search were made with licensees in mind.   Once you find a course, we will redirect you to the educational provider’s website.  Some providers will take you directly to a course registration page while others will take you to their homepage.  Just like with the new “Price” feature, eventually all courses will take you directly to the registration page.

You will get this message so you know for sure when you are leaving the CE Broker Course Search:

We hope you take a few minutes to explore some of the new features and find the courses you need.
