Reminder: CEU Scanning for Credits
For those attending sessions to earn CEU credits, please remember to scan in and out of the session using the touch-free scanning system. As you enter an educational session you will scan your badge face side up at the badge scanner at the entrance.
Once you have scanned your badge, the scanner will make a “beep” sound. You may now enter the session.
When the session has finished, you will sign out for the session the same way you signed in. All attendees must scan in and out for credit. All certificates will display the attendee's sign-in and sign-out time.
If the scanner does not work properly, please let the Room Monitors on the 3rd floor near classrooms 305 and 306 or the 4th floor near classrooms 405 and 406 know.
You will be able to download your certificates through the CEU tracking system and print them out from your home or office computer. Certificates will be available for printing on Monday, November 29.
