    This course is primarily designed for Physician Assistants (PA) who are preparing for the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) recertification process.  Other Health Care Providers will be issued a course certificate of training, which can be submitted to their respective Governing Agency for Continuous Education to receive CE credit.
