Home Study Programs for Electrologists

The AEA Office of Continuing Education (OCE) want CEU earning opportunities to be an easy alternative for CPEs. We believe that continuing education improves knowledge, safeguards patient/client health and well being, and enhances the professional image of electrology. The Continuing Education Review Committee (CERC) have approved several sources of continuing education home study but no retroactive granting of CEUs is permitted.

NOTICE: A JOE or Pre-approved Home Study Course may only be taken once.

From time to time these courses need to be updated and may not be available. Please check with the company for prices and availability as they are subject to change without notice.

Earn CEUs With JOE Home Study Exams

Journal of Electrology

The Journal of Electrology, published twice yearly by the AEA, contains educational articles specifically written for the electrologist. A home study test is included at the end of each publication which may be completed and returned to the CERC for scoring. Electrologists may also take the JOE exams online. A processing fee of $20 ($50 for non-AEA members) is required for grading and entry into the computer database.

JOEs older than five (5) years will not be accepted.

AEA members receive a printed copy of the journal free of charge.
