Continuing Education Credit

Continuing education is important for many onsite industry professionals, and NOWRA offers high-quality online educational content as well as in-person training (upon request). By participating in NOWRA’s education programs, members gain a learning foundation that continuously builds personal and professional opportunities.

How Conference Attendees Can Obtain CEUs for Classes They Have Attended

  1. After attending a class, you will be required to take a 3-question test on the educational content
  2. You must answer two questions correctly to pass. You may take the quiz multiple times
  3. Once you pass the test, credit for your attendance will be added to a certificate, along with other classes you take that day. You can also go back and review the material.
  4. At the end of the day, you can generate a certificate documenting all of the courses you attended during the day.

Each attendee is responsible for their own documentation and for making sure it is correctly submitted to the proper authorities. For states which require the course provider to submit documentation, NOWRA will submit that information in a timely fashion following the conference. You shoud still keep a copy of your certification documentation for your records and as a double check against any errors in recording your continuing education credits.
