Exciting news for ABTC continuing education partners!

Questions?  Please contact

The education and training you currently offer your staff can qualify for CEPTCs toward recertification if your organization becomes an "Approved" Provider of continuing education. Approved Providers can offer lectures and educational opportunities with CEPTCs, so this is an opportunity to maintain your staff's certification at a fraction of the cost of sending staff off-site (and often out of town) to external symposia.
Approved Provider status is also available for vendors and professional organizations that want to reach a larger, more captivated audience of highly trained professionals at transplant centers and organ procurement organizations across the country. To become an ABTC-approved CEPTC provider, please read the provider instructions below and complete the online application in the Certemy platform that best fits your needs. ABTC appreciates all of its approved providers and is thankful for their dedication to transplant professionals. If you provide continuing education in transplantation, consider joining this elite group.

Existing Providers will need to set their Certemy password by clicking on the "Forgot password" link on the login page: and an email will be sent to them to set the password and login.

ABTC Approved Provider Testimonial

"Having our Transplant Center as an approved provider by ABTC has allowed us to provide continuing education to a large number of bedside transplant nurses and Transplant Coordinators.  The cost savings of providing the education locally have been immense and we’ve been able to maintain the quality and competence of our clinical team.”

"I have the privilege of serving as one of the Clinical Educators for HonorBridge, an Organ Procurement Organization in North Carolina.  Our organization has been an Approved Provider for the American Board for Transplant Certification (ABTC) and offering Continuing Education Points for the Transplant Coordinator (CEPTCs) for our colleagues here at HonorBridge for more than a decade.  

As an organization, we are committed to service excellence and one of the ways we ensure that is through ABTC Certification (CPTC and CTP).  We require all Organ Donation Coordinators and Surgical Recovery Coordinators in our organization to be certified within 2 years of eligibility.  It is through certification / recertification that we ensure these professionals remain competent and current within the field of organ donation and transplantation.

We encourage our colleagues to seek outside learning opportunities to broaden their perspectives but recognize staffing / scheduling challenges may limit their ability to do so. Making training accessible and meaningful through the Approved Provider program has been one of our paramount goals.  As an ABTC Approved Provider, we are proud to contribute to the growth and development of our colleagues while ensuring they have enough credits for recertifications through in-house offerings.  

An additional advantage of maintaining Approved Provider Status is collaboration and team building. The nature of our work requires our coordinators to be mostly autonomous and geographically isolated.  This limits face time with many of our teammates.  While we do offer online, on-demand trainings, many of offerings are in-house and create opportunities for our colleagues to congregate and learn.

The ability to offer CEPTCs in-house has saved both time and money. If you are on the fence about whether to become an Approved Provider, consider this: the annual fee for Approved Provider Status is far less expensive than sending just one colleague to one conference.  It pays for itself.  I highly recommend.

"I am honored to serve as the Chair for the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) as a provider for the American Board for Transplant Certification (ABTC). As a provider, I have had the privilege of witnessing the incredible impact that transplantation has on the lives of individuals and their families. Through the ABTC, we strive to ensure that healthcare professionals receive the highest quality education and training in the field of transplantation.

Being a part of AMAT has allowed me to contribute to the advancement of multicultural affairs in transplantation, fostering inclusivity and diversity within the field. By providing educational resources and support to healthcare professionals, we are working towards reducing disparities and improving outcomes for all patients, regardless of their background.

It is truly inspiring to witness the dedication and passion of the healthcare professionals who seek ABTC certification. Their commitment to excellence and their desire to make a difference in the lives of transplant patients is truly commendable. As a provider, I am proud to be a part of their journey and to contribute to the growth and development of the transplantation community.

I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) and the American Board for Transplant Certification (ABTC) in advancing the field of transplantation. Together, we are making a positive impact on the lives of transplant patients and shaping the future of healthcare."
