At ACEA, we recognize the demanding nature of professions that require licensing, such as those in the medical field, enterprises/offices, companies/organizations/associations, and more. These professionals often find themselves juggling numerous responsibilities, from managing clients and patients to staying abreast of industry regulations and advancements. You are working diligently, attending rounds and meetings, and perhaps even publishing papers and doing research. On top of all that, you have to remember to renew your medical license(s) and track your continuing education (CE/CME). Fortunately, there are efficient tools available to take the hassle out of tracking CE courses

Considering the importance of CE tracking, having the right tool and solution is one of the best ways to seamlessly track your CE (unless you've resorted to hiring a personal secretary solely devoted to managing your CE credits, because, hey, who needs a life when you can have perfectly organized continuing education?). Here we've gathered five CE tracking tools for you to peruse, because let's face it, even your hypothetical secretary could use a break! We provide a detailed comparison to help you choose the best fit for all your needs, and hopefully, spare your secretary from a CE-induced meltdown.
