Respiratory Care Courses

The Institute for Continuing Education's distance learning courses for respiratory care practitioners are approved in most states for re-licensure. To check the regulations of your state, click here. Our convenient distance learning courses are of the highest quality and are updated regularly to stay current with the latest trends affecting your industry. To learn more about the continuing education course for respiratory therapists, select from the courses below.

Beginning with credentials issued July 1, 2002, the NBRC’s Continuing Competency Program (CCP) was put in place to assure the public and others that individuals credentialed by NBRC continue to demonstrate a level of excellence in professional knowledge, skills and abilities as respiratory therapists and pulmonary function technologists. The purpose behind CCP is to establish standards by which continued competency of credentialed practitioner working on defined areas of respiratory care, including assessment, may be determined. The CCP was designed to enhance and contribute to the continued competence of credentialed respiratory therapists and pulmonary function technologists, as well as demonstrate concern for patient safety. Most individuals required to participate in the program have successfully renewed their national credentials issued by the NBRC by providing evidence that they continue to meet standards of practice.
