Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to the event!

Are you wondering how many continuing education hours this event is worth? 
If you attended the keynote (1 hour), all three concurrent sessions (1.25 hours each; 3.75 hours total), and the plenary session (1 hour), that amounts to 5.75 hours of class time/continuing education. Note: For various reasons, these hours are not tracked/applied to specific Advanced Training Certificates.
