How does our program work?
American Seminar Institute (ASI) offers accredited, portable continuing education courses. You can take your individual course on vacation anywhere in the world or at home. You complete your continuing education when it fits into your schedule. Our CME is flexible and convenient, which enables you to choose your specialty or topics, as well as your location and dates when you want to take your CME. Our courses are delivered in audio CD or MP3 downloadable format with course paperwork. You complete your course and return the testing and evaluation materials. Once your tests have been graded and your forms received, we will mail and/or email your documentation that includes your receipt, confirmation letter, certificate of participation, and transcripts. Documentation will reflect course title, location, dates, tuition paid and credits earned.
