CE Tracking
You will receive a sheet of barcode labels in your registration packet. Each barcode is the same and represents
your badge number. You will be handed pre-populated verification forms as you enter each course. Please place
your barcode label on the right side of the form. At the conclusion of the course, please retain the left side of the
verification stub for your records.
For papers and posters (variable credit): You will receive a blank evaluation form with spaces where the monitors
will enter the times in and out, as well as your verification form where you can keep track of your own times. If you
are planning to re-enter (as is common especially with papers), please keep the form and turn it in once you are
finished in that particular session. Each entry and exit will receive a time stamp. Please note: Your total time will
be calculated based on entry and exit times in 15 minute increments.
A link to the CE Certificates will be emailed to you after the meeting.
Handouts are available digitally at We encourage you to be mindful about printing them out
– let’s be green conscious!
