    Approved Instructor Self-Tracking Teaching and Renewal Course Requirements:

    Upon the Approved Instructor expiration date, your status will renew another 3 years if you have met teaching requirements and completed the ALSO Online Instructor Renewal Course (current edition during their status period) prior to your expiration date. The status will renew on the expiration date printed on your wallet card, NOT the date in which the Online Instructor Renewal Course is completed.

    Self-Tracking Your Requirements:

    •  In your AAFP Transcript/Account, access your Wallet Card and note the start and expiration dates printed on it.
    •  Find your entries that read ALSO Teaching: ALSO Provider Course, ALSO Instructor Course or BLSO Provider Course between your start and expiration dates.
    •  If you see your required number of ‘Teaching’ entries, you have met your teaching requirement.
    • You will also find the Online Instructor Renewal Course letter of participation in your transcript/account, found next to the date it was completed. If not in transcript, please complete prior to your expiration date.
