This Research Community Forum offers a variety of continuing education credit options. Details about each can be found below. There is no additional charge (beyond conference registration) to receive these credits. 

After the conference, a link to the evaluation system will be sent by email to all attendees. Upon completing a conference evaluation, you will be presented with an option to print off a certificate including the type of hours you would like to receive, including the option of receiving a general “certificate of completion.”

Completion of an evaluation is necessary to receive a completion certificate. While you can only claim one credit type, this may also be used for maintaining CRP/ CIP certifications.
