How Do Digital Self-Study Courses Work?

Each course includes the following:

  • Instructions on how to complete the course and earn credits
  • Course material, including required readings from the corresponding book and any additional reading
  • Assessment
  • Course evaluation form

You have 180 days from date of purchase to complete all course requirements. Upon purchase, you will see the course in the “My Online Learning” section of your MyACHE account. From there, you will be directed to ACHE’s learning management system to complete the course.

Upon completion of the course, you will earn six ACHE Qualified Education credits toward your advancement in ACHE. Course credit will be applied automatically after all course requirements are completed.
