The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science maintains responsibility for this program and its content. CE rules require that we only issue credits to those who attend the entire workshop. Those arriving more than 15 minutes late or leaving before the entire workshop is completed will not receive CE credits.

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 These online evaluations must be completed by Sunday, 14 July 2019. We will email you a printable copy of your certificate by 15 August 2019. This email will come to you from “ACBS”. If you do not receive it, please email

If you do not complete all evaluations corresponding to our attendance records by the date listed above (14 July 2019), you have until 22 August 2019 to contact ACBS to contest or correct the number of hours/credits earned. An additional fee of $20 USD will apply if the error is due to incomplete evaluations.

After 22 August 2019, corrections/contestations will be considered on a case-by-case basis and additional fees will apply.

BCBA credits are sponsored by Foxylearning.  Thank you Foxylearning!

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.

Not sure if you need CEs?

Check with your licensing agency, and/or sign in/out on the yellow sheets provided, and you can determine your eligibility immediately after the event (still adhering to the evaluation deadlines mentioned above). If you do not scan or sign in/out, or complete necessary evaluations by the deadline, that cannot be “corrected” later.


A €40 fee will be required to earn CEs.  If you attend either a pre-conference workshop(s), World Conference, or both, only €40 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 $8 USD per credit hour, after the event.

Refunds & Grievance Policies: Participants may direct any questions or complaints to ACBS Executive Director Emily Rodrigues,, or through the Contact Us link on this website.

Poster sessions, IGNITE sessions, sessions shorter than 1 hour, social evening events, Chapter/SIG/Committee meetings, and some other specialty sessions do not qualify for Continuing Education.
