Welcome to the THCA Connects Learning Hub!
This site gives THCA members the opportunity to earn CEUs from articles appearing in THCA's quarterly magazine, Perspective. What could be simpler than earning credit for something you read anyway? Click on one of the titles below to find out more about the topic, the issue in which the article appeared, and the type and number of CEUs that have been granted. Successfully passing a short quiz will earn credit for which you will receive a printed certificate through THCA Connects.
Remember that you will need to have the Perspective article handy so that you can retrieve the Verification Code that appears in the article. You'll need to enter this code when you register for the quiz.
The cost of each course is $12.50. So start learning today!
