Continuing Education

“Ensuring the best and most current training and education for health care providers to maintain licensure or certification.”

Continuing education is essential for maintaining licensure or certification for health care providers. SDAHO assists our membership in meeting those needs by providing current and evidence-based education training in a variety of forums. Each year, SDAHO supports members with their licensure and/or certification by offering continuing education and contact hours at conferences and events, including Annual Convention, Rural Health Leaders and Post-Acute Partners in Care Conference. Additionally, other educational training is provided throughout the year through webinars and in-person sessions allowing members additional means to earn education credits.
