I contacted ASCP Board of Registry, and asked for the
paper that they send everyone who passes the Qualification
in Immunohistochemistry. On it is listed the acceptable
Continuing Education for revalidation of the QIHC every
five year.

Frankly, it looks like just about anything in histotechnology,
immunology, molecular pathology, EM, or lab safety or
management could apply:
