The Continuing Education Committee (CEC) is responsible for recommending to the Council approval of providers of continuing education in podiatric medicine. CEC reviews applications, petitions, reports of on-site evaluations, progress reports, requests for reconsideration, and annual reports when concerns have been identified through staff review.

Composition of CEC includes two representatives from approved providers of continuing education in podiatric medicine (selected by the Council), one representative from the podiatric practice community (selected by the Council), one representative from state licensing boards (appointed by the Federation of Podiatric Medical Boards), at least two Council members (one of whom is a public member), and one representative (of the American Society of Podiatric Executives (selected by ASPE). The Council and its staff administer the affairs of CEC.
