An examination on the computer study must be successfully completed within 30 days of the webinar session as part of the process to obtain a waiver for prescribing buprenorphine.

    Instructions on how to log on to the second half of the course will be provided via email, ONLY to those who complete the 4.25-hour live webcast in its entirety. Please note that in order to be eligible for the waiver to prescribe Buprenorphine, you must complete a total of 8 hours consisting of the live webcast session (4.25-hours) and the online self-study session and exam (3.75-hours) within 30 days of the live webcast session. The AOAAM cannot verify completion of the webinar session if less than 4.25 hours are attended. Should you not attend for the entire session, you will have to retake the entire webinar again on a different date in order to get credit. Please be aware that it is MANDATORY that you are able to view and hear the presentation and participate in the interactive polling questions in order for the AOAAM to verify your attendance. The combined live webcast and online self-study training will provide the required 8 hours needed to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid dependence. Physicians who complete this course will meet the training qualification under the new law. For NPs and PAs, an additional 16-hours of training will be required for waiver eligibility.
