Congress of Chiropractic State Associations is NOW a CAE Approved Provider!  

A CAE Approved Provider is an organization that has formally registered with the CAE program and committed to providing education that meets the CAE Commission’s standards for helping individuals earn or maintain the Certified Association Executive credential. CAE Approved Providers have received guidance on such standards and pledged to properly represent course eligibility for CAE credit.

When selecting a CAE-eligible course from a CAE Approved Provider, CAEs and CAE candidates can be confident that the course will be recognized for CAE credit as advertised. The CAE program encourages candidates and CAEs to consider qualifying courses from CAE Approved Providers to meet the professional development requirements to earn or maintain the CAE credential.

A web sticker like this one will be placed by qualifying programs in print and online.  Look for the following text on our website to designate qualifying programs:

CAE Credit Eligibility Criteria for Approved Providers

To be eligible for CAE credit, courses must be directly related to association or nonprofit management topics as defined by the CAE Exam Content Outline.

Live courses (including face-to-face, audio/videoconference, and instructor-led online delivery) earn CAE credit for actual clock time of qualifying education including partial hours, up to a maximum of 8 CAE credits per day.  Example: 1½ hours of qualifying education equals 1.5 CAE credits.  

The following are not eligible to earn CAE credit:

  • General software/training courses.
  • Expo hall hours
  • Industry-specific programs (not general association management;  courses specific to the industry/profession an association represents)
  • Networking receptions
  • Breaks between educational sessions
  • Product-specific promotional courses or training
  • Staff-to-staff education

Determination of CAE credit eligibility does not imply endorsement, accreditation, or assessment of education quality.
