Continuing Education Information( IHCA offer CE credits only)
Sessions have been organized into educational tracks that are distributed throughout the convention. Track assignments are for convenience in selecting sessions to attend; it is not mandatory to stay within a specific discipline. Representatives from all disciplines are welcome to attend any session.
CE information will be collected through the convention virtual platform which will calculate the amount of time spent viewing each session. Sessions must be viewed in their entirety for you to receive credit for “attending” that session.
A link to the Continuing Education Verification Form may be found on the home page of the convention virtual platform. This form MUST be completed in order to receive your certificate of attendance.
The “official” certificate of attendance will be available 4- 6 weeks following the conclusion of the event through IHCA’s CE Central. An email will be sent to the email address indicated on the Continuing Education Verification Form. Note: The convention virtual platform will automatically generate a document stating that you have participated in a session. However, this is not the “official” certificate of attendance” needed for CE verification.
