Test Yourself: This is an opportunity to “test yourself” and earn continuing education credits. Each issue of The Journal of the Association of Genetic Technologists contains an “open book test” based on articles from the previous issue of The Journal. Participants complete a multiple choice test and return it by the deadline, along with the CEU form located in The Journal, to their regional Education Committee representatives for grading. The committee member addresses are printed in The Journal. Successful participation in each Test Yourself earns the participant 3 Contact Hours. Test Yourselves are free to AGT members, and are $30 for non-members.

Journal Club: This activity is designed to meet the continuing education needs of individuals in all laboratory settings. Journal Clubs contain a set of questions that are usually based on three recent journal articles. Source information for the articles is provided, but participants must obtain the articles themselves. Participants are to read the articles and discuss them as a group, or if completing them individually, to read the articles and consider the discussion questions. After discussion or study, all individuals applying for CEUs are to complete the question sets included in the Journal Club packet and return the completed forms to their regional Education Committee representatives for grading. Committee members are listed in each issue of The Journal of the Association of Genetic Technologists. Documentation of CEUs earned will be returned to successful applicants. New Journal Clubs are announced in The Journal of the Association of Genetic Technologists and AGT E-News. Successful completion of each AGT Journal Club earns the participant 4.0 Contact Hours. AGT Journal are $10 for members and $30 for non-members.
