  • By speaking / instructing at an activity that is registered for CM credit by the educational provider.

  • By self-reporting attendance, pro bono planning service or speaking / instructing at an activity that is not registered for CM credit by the provider but meets CM criteria and is approved by APA staff.

  • By authoring an article

  • By authoring a published journal article

  • By authoring a book
