Agencies within the Upstate region have the opportunity to become members of the Upstate AHEC Consortium. Those agencies that are not members of the consortium are able to attend all Continuing Education offerings but do not receive the benefits afforded to consortium members.
All Continuing Education programs offered by Upstate AHEC are open to both consortium and non-consortium attendees. Membership in the Upstate AHEC Consortium allows all employees of the agency to attend Continuing Education programs free of charge. Due to the cost of certain courses, i.e. those where the speaker fee exceeds $1000/day, a reduced fee may be required of consortium attendees.
Individual Consortium Membership entitles the member to attend all Upstate AHEC programs at no charge for registration.
Meals, roster fees and books, if required for a specific program are not included in consortium membership.
Consortium membership is not transferable and membership fees are non-refundable.
Consortium membership with Upstate AHEC is available to individuals, agencies, or divisions of organizations involved in health care and interested in enhancing professional competencies and maintaining licensure. For one low annual fee, consortium members register for all of the educational programs sponsored by Upstate AHEC tuition free and the number of attendees per group is not limited.
Continuing Education programs are open to all participants, but consortium members get the experience for less. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Last year, consortium members had access to the following:
- More than 87 continuing education programs, many developed based upon the needs identified by your organization
- More than 682 teaching hours delivered by a cadre of the most competent clinicians and educators
You can begin accessing these benefits today by completing and submitting the individual membership application form. To access these forms, CLICK HERE. For more information about how your organization can become a consortium member, call 864-349-1160.
