Information about the CE Process at the Event:

Please remember to scan in and out at the beginning and end of each session using our scanner system. If there is a problem and the scanners are not working, please make sure to sign in and out on the paper check-in sheet provided. We cannot give CE credit if you do not scan/sign in and out.

Please DO NOT SCAN in and out for coffee/tea breaks. CE credits are NOT available for IGNITE sessions, Chapter/SIG/Committee meetings, or other lunch time sessions.

You will need to complete an evaluation for each session you attend, in order to earn CEs (of any type offered). The evaluations will all be done online. You can complete your evaluations at http://contextualscience.org/evals. These online evaluations must be completed by Wednesday, August 15, 2018. We will email you a printable copy of your certificate by September 15, 2018. This email will come to you from “ACBS”. If you do not receive it, please email support@contextualscience.org.

Certificate with Number of Hours Attended:

As an alternative to a CE certificate, some credentialing agencies (please check with yours) may accept a certificate with the number of hours attended. This requires that an individual verifies their attendance by signing in and out of each session that they attend during the event. The cost for this type of certificate is $10 CAD.


Fees:

A $55 CAD fee will be required to earn CEs. If you attend either a pre-conference workshop(s), World Conference, or both, only $55 CAD is due. If you register for multiple events separately, please only pay the fee one time. This fee is non-refundable (unless you cancel your registration in its entirety before the cancellation deadline). Attendance verification (sign in/out) and evaluations also may be required.

BCBA credits are charged at $10 CAD per credit hour, after the event.
