A certificate of attendance or completion with the CMS logo is necessary to show participation. To claim CEUs attendees will enter certificate information onto their CEU Tracker using the "No Index Number" option. A copy of the certificate does not need to be provided to AAPC unless the member is selected for verification purposes.
