I am surprised that AFAA is not responding to this question.
Not too long ago they were asking for our opinion on specialty certifications and were quite vocal about their opinion.
I would have thought that they would reach out to their certified professionals.
Well, as has been mentioned, you will need to ask AFAA directly. They would have the best answer for you.
No, AFAA does allow pre-approved courses that are workshops and their online courses, workshops, and home studies. I think they do some college but no other distant learning. The cheapest way to get CEUs for AFAA is their distance learning durning APEX. It costs $75 for 15 CEUs and its online. Also, it’s required you have at least 1 AFAA workshop, home study, or distant learning.
