Attendees can receive continuing education hours for attending educational sessions at the annual conference (usually this totals up to approximately 12 hours). Additional continuing education hours (typically, up to 8) can be obtained by attending the pre-conference Professional Development Institutes. Continuing education hours are valuable to maintaining credentials.

Complete that form, sign it and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (918) 663-7058. Next, you will receive an email with a survey link to complete the evaluation of those sessions you attended. Then you can go to the NCDA website, www.ncda.org, click on login to access your account (see your name in the upper right corner and click on Members Only Resources). 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 how you can print out your certificate if necessary. These certificates/transcripts (starting with the 2015 Conference) are available to current members and can be accessed/printed as needed. There is an option to Print My Transcript in the top right hand corner. You can come to this page anytime in the future by logging in as a member.
