Continuing Education

DAY ONE = 5.5 clock hours
DAY TWO = 5.5 clock hours
DAY THREE = 3 clock hours

 

Certificates are issued each day following the last session of the day documenting clock hours.

You do not need to sign in for the conference unless required to do so by your employer or your continuing education licensing board/organization.

Participants are responsible for submitting their certificates of attendance and documentation of sessions attended to their disciplinary board/organization to obtain CEUs (these documents will be available at the conference).  Note:  Not all disciplines calculate CEUs from clock hours in the same way. Your disciplinary board/organization will provide you with information on how many CEUs you will receive based on your actual clock hours.
