TACA is no longer the entity that approves classes for credit hours. If you have a class to submit for credit hour approval, it must be submitted through the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) in Austin prior to the date of the class. DSHS approval may take up to eight (8) weeks. Any questions about whether or not a proposed class is state-approved should be directed to DSHS. To avoid confusion, TACA is only able to post state-approved classes on this website. Proof of state approval is required. TACA obtains state-approval for all of its conferences. Members may be assured that they will receive the appropriate credit hours for any TACA conferences or classes that they attend.
