The NBRC’s Continuing Competency Program has been designed to enhance and/or contribute to the continuing competence of credentialed respiratory therapists and pulmonary function technologists and demonstrate concern for patient safety. Credentials awarded by the NBRC on or after July 1, 2002 are valid for a period of five years and are subject to the Continuing Competency Program requirements. Individuals participating in the Continuing Competency Program are required to provide evidence they are continuing to meet current standards of practice and have successfully renewed their national credentials issued by the NBRC. Through implementation of the Continuing Competency Program, the NBRC further demonstrates its compliance with the accreditation standards of the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).

For more information regarding the types of CE courses that are accepted by the NBRC, the expiration of your credential, and submitting your CEUs please access the NBRC Continuing Competency Program.
