Continuing Education Approval CEU/PDA/CPD
There will be concurrent sessions Thursday to Sunday. Since you can only attend one seminar at a time you will only be able to receive hours for what you actually attend during the IFS.
How many PDA/CPD/CEU credits can can I earn?
If you attend all 4 days (pre-symposium + 3 days) then 26 participation hours. If you only attend the 3 day symposium then 20 participation hours. We have over 58 hours of lectures during concurrent sessions. You can only earn CEU/PDA/CPD for classes you attend.
