Continuing Education Credits
The 2022 Alzheimer’s Association Conference has been approved by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Department of Continuing Education for 6.0 CEHs and 0.6 CEUs.
Here are a few important items for you to know:
- CEU/CEH certificate request link: https://tinyurl.com/6pet2we4
- The cost of continuing education credits ($30.00) is not included in the registration fee for the conference.
- Each participant must be individually registered to qualify.
- Each participant must attend LIVE each day.
- It is the individual's responsibility to report CEH/CEUs earned to their appropriate credential or licensing board.
- If you only need a certificate of attendance, this will be provided to all registrants after the conference. This certificate does not qualify for continuing education.
The CE credit request form will be an online form that we will send you to complete after the conference. Attendance in the live sessions will be recorded and submitted to UWSP Continuing Education by the Alzheimer's Association.
