What’s Approved:

The Association Convention submits all sessions for consideration approval from the following accrediting organizations. Some organizations sometimes accept only certain classes and do not approve all hours as requested. 

How to calculate CEs: CE totals are based upon the length of the session; for example, a 60-minute session offers 1.0 CE, a 90-minute session = 1.5 CE, etc.
