You may return to the website as many times as you like to add more sessions or edit your session list. Completed sessions can only be entered at the conclusion of a session. All sessions must be attended in their entirety. No partial credit will be tabulated for attendance. CEs are awarded to participants as they are noted in the on-site program and mobile app. If sessions overlap in the program, they cannot be entered for credit. If a session is shorter than stated in the program, credit is awarded as it is stated in the program. There are NO exceptions to these rules.
