Frequently Asked Questions about Educational Transcripts
What information is included in the educational transcript?
Educational transcripts provide a full audit of the last 7 years of AIHA Distance Learning and Continuing Education courses. Beginning in May 1, 2010, the transcript supplies AIHce and Fall Conference PDC certification information and lists AIHce and Fall Conference attendance information for week day technical sessions. Note that education transcripts do not reflect speakers/presenters instruction credits.
When are educational transcripts updated?
Educational transcripts are typically updated within 45 days of course completion/attendance.
Is the educational transcript listed in my member profile acceptable proof-of-participation?
AIHA PDCs, Road Courses & Webinars: The AIHA Educational Transcript is an acceptable proof-of-participation record. CM hours or points as listed on the Educational Transcript are the values that the CIH reports to ABIH.
AIHA Conferences: The AIHA Educational Transcript is a partial proof-of- participation record. Additional supporting records are needed; see the ABIH web site for details. The CM hours or points listed on the Educational Transcript are the maximum CM credit values for the event. The CIH reports the CM hours or points based on their actual attendance in the technical sessions, which usually is less than the maximum.
Non-AIHA Events: The AIHA Educational Transcript is not acceptable as a proof-of-participation record or for determining CM credit value.
How can I print my transcript?
One option is to print your entire member profile from your browser. An alternative is to take a screenshot of just your educational transcript from your member profile. If you would like a copy of your transcript on AIHA letterhead for a AIHA Distance Learning or Continuing Education course, contact us at DLAssistant@aiha.org.
What do the headings on the education transcript mean?
* In January 2012, ABIH asked CIH’s to begin tracking technical contact hours instead of points, so the use of credit hours entered in transcripts is consistent with their new rules. For individuals maintaining their ABIH certification, the ABIH website has additional information on the CM point-to-hour conversion.
