How many Continuing Education Hours are given for attending the virtual conference?
The virtual conference offers 15 contact hours. The NCDA conference fully supports the NCDA Credentialing Commission's requirements for continuing education. NCDA is an NBCC-Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements. Sessions for which NBCC-approved clock hours will be awarded are identified in the app. The ACEP is solely responsible for all aspects of the program.
How do I receive Continuing Education Clock Hours for this conference? Will I receive a certificate?
An email will be also sent to participants after the conference with complete instructions and necessary forms/links. You must first fill out a form marking each session you viewed. After you return that form to us, you will get a link to fill out a survey evaluating each session you viewed. Next you can go to the NCDA website, www.ncda.org, click on LOGIN to access your account. Once you’re in your account, find View My CE History. This is where you will see how many CEs you’ve earned for attending the event, as well as print out your certificate if necessary. Members can come to this page anytime in the future to view your CE history and print certificates. (Non-members will be given temporary access.) If you have any trouble, please contact NCDA Headquarters: (918) 663-7060.
