What Is the Learning Center?
The APA Learning Center is the integrated home for all your education needs. Complete educational activities within our system to earn CME credit, meet MOC requirements, and learn new skills. Completed activities are automatically reflected on your APA Transcript. You can even record activities from other CME providers on your transcript using our External Certificate feature.

Who Can Access the Learning Center?
Anyone. To get started, login to your APA account and select an activity. Don’t have an account? No problem. You don’t have to be an APA member to create a new user account for free.

What Types of Activities Are Available?
We have 200+ activities in the Learning Center Catalog. Many are offered for free or at a minimal cost. APA Members always get the best price.

You can use the Learning Center to:
