Journal of Analytical Toxicology Continuing Education

CE Availability
SOFT has partnered with our official journal, JAT, to offer continuing education credits for journal articles throughout the year. Each edition of the JAT will feature an “Editor’s Choice” article that is available for 1 hour of CE credit. You will read the article and answer a series of questions designed to verify that the article was read. The questionnaire will be evaluated on a Pass/Fail basis (no partial credit), so please be sure to provide COMPLETE answers to ensure CE credit. Each CE opportunity will available on the website for ~2 months. Please check the website for a new CE offering as each issue of JAT is published. Once the article has been read and the questionnaire uploaded successfully, please allow approximately 1 month after the article’s “closing date” to receive your CE certificate. All CE certificates will be maintained in your Member profile on the SOFT website for future reference. You must be a SOFT member in good standing in order to be eligible for CE credits. Follow the step-by-step process below to submit your answers.
This is the third continuing education opportunity for 2017. The deadline for the article below is June 30, 2017. No submissions will be accepted after that date.
