Training Requirements

In 2019 the CMS removed the requirement that employees need to complete the Medicare FWA training specifically created by CMS. However, the requirement to complete FWA training remains. Training must occur within 90 days of initial hire.

FWA training is an annual requirement. An employee must complete FWA training every "calendar year." The employee does not have to wait until the anniversary of initial completion—only, complete the training within each calendar year.

Certificate of Completion

Upon successful completion of our Medicare FWA Course and final exam, you will be able to immediately print your completion certificate from your My Account page. It will also be e-mailed to you.

If you lose your certificate of completion and need a replacement, you can log back into you account and print additional copies.

At the end of the course, you will be able to select the option to claim your ACPE Continuing Education credit for this course.
