Registrants may be required to bring instruments or other materials to the hands-on workshop. It is the responsibility of each registrant to check their confirmation email carefully for equipment needed.
- CE VERIFICATION
CE verification is automatically provided for all course attendees. To receive CE credit, attendees must scan their badge at the entry door of the course. The system will then calculate attendance and appropriate CE credits per course. Attendees can obtain a printed CE Certificate following the conclusion of the course, in the convenience of your home or office. (CE Certification printing not available onsite)
