Continuing Education Units

 

Through collaborations with its university affiliates, CARD Conference 2017 will offer CE credits for behavior analysts, speech language pathologists, licensed mental health and clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and mental health counselors.

All conference participants seeking continuing education credits must pay the $40 fee prior to receiving their documentation of hours/units. (The fee is charged to participants seeking CEs since it is not incorporated in the registration fee for those that do not choose or require them, and is charged by the conference provider for processing.) Pick up a packet from the Continuing Education Table at the beginning of the conference to ensure that you receive credit for all sessions.

Prior to leaving, please take a photo of your paperwork for your own future reference, as all paperwork is turned over to the CE issuing authority after the conference. Please turn in the necessary paperwork to the Continuing Education Sign- In Table AFTER attending your LAST conference session.

Other professionals seeking CE credit should contact their licensing or credentialing boards BEFORE purchasing CEs. There will be no refunds for CE fees after the conference.
