On-Site Credit Information
Continuing Education Instructions for Physicians, Nurses, Health Educators, Laboratorians, and Others

All conference participants are eligible for continuing education credit. Award is contingent upon completion of an evaluation for every session for which you are requesting continuing education and completion of the Overall Conference Evaluation.

On-Site Attendee Continuing Education Credit Tracking

For on-site attendees, there are two methods to record your earned continuing education credits and produce a Certificate of Continuing Education.

1. Proceed before the end of the conference to the Cyber Café; in Hanover A/B on the Exhibit Level to record your answers to survey questions for each of the sessions you have attended. Upon completion of the questionnaire, certificates can be printed immediately. Please note that the Cyber Café closes at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27. We do not recommend that you record your session attendance on a daily basis rather than waiting until the end of the meeting. Certificates printed daily will show cumulative hours.

2. Following ICEID, attendees will have until Thursday, April 30, to access the ExpoExchange CEU Manager online to register, record and print your certificates.

After April 30, credit hours will not be available to record on-site attendance at the conference. The certificates issued at the meeting or online after are the only record that you will have of your continuing education credits.
