One of MEAC’s roles is to evaluate continuing education (CE) and distance continuing education for midwives and other women’s health care providers. MEAC acts to “approve as appropriate” the CE programs that individual sponsors and national or state midwifery organizations offer to midwives and related professionals.
Program sponsors who receive MEAC approval for their intended offerings then award to participants the continuing education units (CEU’s) or contact hours. MEAC does not award the CEU certificate or proof of attendance, or ‘accredit’ CE programs. It approves organizations to award CEU’s for their CE programs after review of their applications.
