Individual State Approvals for 2022 conference

Credit hours are currently being applied for and pursued for and are PENDING for the 2022 conference with Missouri as well as many other states. Once final determination is made by the approving authority, the credit hours will be posted here.

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 should 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.

IMPORTANT! Please be sure to read any documentation for your state in the chart below so that you understand which courses are approved and how you should submit your information.
