Are you already an accredited provider? If so, you may award contact hours through your own agency’s process. Although the cost is the same, you are not required to use IAFN as your provider of Contact Hours. Please know that the SANE Course Review and Approval process may result in changes to your program and a need to resubmit your documents to your provider of Contact Hours.
