Information about credits
- Continuing education credits are given as whole numbers only. You cannot receive a half of a credit.
- You will receive one credit for any activity that is more than 50 minutes, but less than 100 minutes.
- If you attend conferences or conventions that have several small segments that are less than 50 minutes, you may add them together. For example, if you attended a conference that had five 30 minute presentations, that would equal 150 minutes and be counted as 3 credits.
