There is no fee to participate in this activity. A laptop or desktop computer is recommended to take this activity. A PIM can only be completed for credit once per MOC cycle. Both the participant and reviewer can claim credit for the activity.

However, ASE will slightly modify its official open hours to 9 AM – 4 PM Eastern TimeMonday-Friday. Should you need to get in touch with a staff person, call our main office at 919-861-5574 and a phone list by department will be available. A staff directory is also available here. All general questions can also be sent through ASE@ASEcho.org. Thank you and our best wishes for your continued safety.
