To apply for CMEs / CEHs, conference attendees must pay the associated fee*, either in advance or at the on-site conference registration desk. Attendance at conference events will be verified electronically. Each attendee seeking continuing education credits/hours will have an electronic code attached to his/her conference badge. At the beginning of EACH session, attendees must have their badges “scanned” by room monitors in order to record continuing education credits/hours. Please note that if you leave the session early, you will be scanned out and run the risk of not getting the associated credit(s) for that session. These monitors will have electronic equipment that will automatically record each individual’s attendance in a database. The database will track and tabulate each attendee’s continuing education credits/hours. After the conference, certificates documenting attendance and the number of continuing education credits/hours earned will be electronically generated and emailed to all eligible attendees.
