NSGC Online Education

Do you need to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs)?

All of the opportunities below have been approved for Category 1 CEUs by the National Society of Genetic Counselors. CEUs earned through these opportunities will be accepted by the American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) for purposes of Genetic Counselor recertification.

Advantages of Online Education While online learning can never replace offerings at the NSGC Annual Education Conference (AEC), it does have numerous benefits including:

  • Convenience; Participants can listen to presentations on their own schedule, any time of day.
  • Increased information retention – Since each of us learn at our own time and pace, the amount of information retained from the presentation is often greater.
  • Lower overall cost – Since there is no instructor or travel involved, the cost of online education is substantially less than learning similar material in a traditional setting.
