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.
