Upcoming CME Courses (Vascular Testing)

It is our goal to provide the most comprehensive listing possible as a service to the vascular testing community. We are aware that these courses are a partial listing. The IAC does not endorse nor guarantee the content and relevance to vascular testing in meeting the CME requirements. Please note: Due to an increased need for echocardiography techs to be cross-trained, several noninvasive vascular courses are also listed below. Courses are listed chronologically.

Course Directors: If your course contains substantial vascular testing content and does not currently appear below, please complete the IAC CE Event Submission form here.
