It's already been a busy year at Milestone CE! If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, or keep up with us here on the blog, you know March was National Athletic Trainer Month and April was National Occupational Therapy Month. Besides social media announcements, we love celebrating our practitioners with promotions and sales to show our appreciation! All you have to do to get a heads up on discounted courses and promo codes is "Like" us on Facebook and follow us here on the blog.
As we start a brand new month, here's a heads up on the national awareness topics we'll be keeping in mind as we make our way through 2014!
May - This month is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month! Sponsored by the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, & Nutrition, the goal of this month is to raise awareness of the importance of physical activity for all ages. For us here at MCE, it's a reminder to think about all of the hard work our athletic trainers, certified strength and conditioning specialists, and NSCA certified personal trainers do every day to keep our bodies healthy and ready to take it to the next level!
October - We've got a double-whammy this month with National Physical Therapy Month and National Chiropractic Health Month! We've got a whole month to "officially" celebrate these awesome professionals, even though we appreciate their services all year!
It may not look like much, but don't worry there is a lot to celebrate when you're a Milestone CE practitioner! New courses are added to the course catalog throughout the year, as well as sales and promotions (Christmas in July, anyone?) to be announced here and on our social media platforms. If you're curious about these and other awareness/appreciation topics, visit the National Health Observances Calendar 2014.

We understand that feeling of suspicion when you see a promo code on the Internet. You may find yourself asking, "Is it trustworthy? Is it really going to discount my purchase? Is the website going to ask me unnecessary questions before I can use it? Do I have to take a survey or do something to earn the discount?" You don't have to worry about any of those questions with Milestone Continuing Education promo codes. When you see a promo code linked to one of our web ads, or posted on our social media pages, you can rest assured that it is going to do exactly what you expect it to do without making you jump through hoops to use it. Check it out! All you have to do is type the promo code into the box provided on the checkout page of the MCE website (featured below) and the discount is automatically applied to your purchase.
Promo codes are announced on our social media accounts more than once during their duration, so be sure to "Like" us on our Facebook Page to be sure you're kept in the loop for all sales and promotions!

It seems like another year has passed by at record time, and while many people's favorite holiday season is now over, another unique time of year has officially begun! It's the space of time between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. That's the time when people start to make their resolutions lists and envision a brand new set of goals for themselves on the brink of a clean 365-day slate.
While some to-do's on the list may be short lived, others will reach completion. Does that remind you of something? Here at Milestone we've been working on a few goals of our own for 2014...Our number one goal is to provide our practitioners with an incomparable online continuing education experience. How do we plan to accomplish that? You'll have to wait and see, but let's just say new improvements to our website are in the works to further enhance our user-friendly formatting; we'll be adding new CEU courses and expanding our course catalog; and we have already started planning new and exciting promotions for our physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, chiropractors, massage therapists, CSCSs, and NSCA certified personal trainers to enjoy (just to name a few things)! It would seem 2014 is already shaping up to be the best year at Milestone Continuing Education so far!
As fun as it may be to step out of the box and experience some change, some things at MCE will always be the same from year to year. Our 24-hour 365 days a year customer service availability will still be in action! Our representatives are ready and waiting to assist you in any way they can to ensure you have a great online CE experience with Milestone. Our courses will still be offered in convenient PDF or mail format packaging that you can access through your home computer or tablet device (or print out entirely if you prefer). And Milestone will continue to maintain the continuing education program regulations of the AOTA (Approved Provider 7487), the PACE program of Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, the BOC (Approved Provider P8382), the NSCA (Approved Provider L1272) and state boards for physical therapy continuing education.
So as you start to compile your list of accomplishments to conquer during the next year, don't forget to include completing quality and affordable online continuing education courses that will enhance your existing knowledge and allow you to better aid your patients and fellow practitioners. And if you're currently in the market for that kind of online CE, don't let the ball drop before you check out Milestone Continuing Education: the online resource for CE designed with YOU in mind!
At the effortless click of your mouse, you are exposed to hundreds of CE companies claiming to provide high impact CEUs. So it's understandable why it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming when it comes time to choose your CEU courses. Faced with endless options, how do you make the right decision? Never fear! There are signs you can look for and steps you can take to ensure that you not only choose the courses that will best benefit your area of practice, but that will help you steer clear of false promises. Before you start sifting through the options, ask yourself these questions:
CEU credits come in all forms, so knowing what format will best suit your lifestyle is important if you're trying to get the most out of your continuing education program. If it is important to you that the course material is all new information, not recycled for older edition textbooks, then make sure that is what you're purchasing. If having access to 24 hour customer service matters, make sure the company offers that service. There are also a few other obvious signs you can look for to make sure your online continuing education courses are the best quality out there. Look for these logos on the company's website (each of these logos are earned by the company for completing the strict approval processes of these organizations):
These indicators signify that the CE credits you're earning hold up to the standards of major regulatory organizations within your industry. Needless to say, there is a lot to look for when you're choosing online CE. One online resource you can always rest assured in is Milestone CE. Milestone provides the ultimate trifecta of online CEU courses that are affordable; created using only the latest information available in your field; and conveniently formatted as downloadable PDF documents that don't require WiFi access, making them perfect for busy lifestyles!

The Milestone Team
Reboots seem to be pretty popular in the movie business these days, so we thought we'd take a note from Hollywood and do one ourselves - Milestone style! Here are our top reasons why we think you should choose Milestone Continuing Education courses out of the sea of options online (we think we're a great catch! Get it?!

We are proud to announce that Milestone is the BOC's Featured Approved Provider for Winter 2013!
It is an honor to have been selected to receive this recognition from the national authority for the athletic training industry - The Board of Certification! Check us out in the Winter Edition of the BOC's biannual publication, or visit their archives here!
It's no secret that at Milestone we strive for unmatched quality in our online continuing education courses for all of the professionals we serve, including athletic trainers. Part of how we achieve this goal is by seeking out Approved Provider (AP) status with trusted national organizations like the BOC. This involves much more than filling out basic paperwork or paying a fee to "join the club." These organizations set the bar for continuing education companies and rigorously review their courses and qualifications before they are allowed to call themselves an AP. This is the best active quality assurance on the Internet, or anywhere for that matter! And we are so honored to be able to say that we meet and will continue to uphold those standards!
With the December 31, 2013 deadline clearly visible on the horizon, and hundreds of athletic training CEU options online, we suggest ATs opt for a BOC Approved Provider that will deliver athletic training CEUs to help them achieve their best in the workplace and beyond (hint hint - that's us)! Now ATs exploring the Milestone Course Catalog can rest assured that all 300+ hours of CE courses have been granted Category A approval and meet the regulations established by the BOC for Approved Providers of athletic trainer continuing education.
Contact us with your CE questions or for more information on how to get started on your Milestone athletic training continuing education 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is waiting for you!
