Continuing Education
This Colloquium program holds a potential of 5.75 credit hours. Because each accrediting body must approve the program prior to assigning credits, the specific number of credits accepted by each state and for each type of credit will not be definite until May. Keep in mind that not all hours will be deemed acceptable for all types of credit. Questions about continuing education credits can be sent to Kelly Dolan at education@guardianship.org or call NGA at (877) 326-5992, ext. 2.
Proof of Attendance
NGA moderators will announce two codes during each session: one at the beginning and another during the session. Codes MUST be entered on attendance verification sheets to receive proof of attendance; should you miss one of the codes, please insert the time you arrived/left the session in place of the code. Moderators, staff and other attendees are unable to repeat these codes as this is a requirement to verify attendance for continuing education credit; falsifying information can result in loss of education hours for all attendees. Attendance forms must be completed and submitted to receive any credit; NGA strongly advises that all attendees submit attendance verification forms to document participation should you need record of it in the future.
Verified Certificate of Attendance
The Colloquium registration includes a verified certificate for every attendee who submits an attendance verification sheet which uses a code system for each session. This certificate can be submitted as proof of attendance to areas of education where NGA did not seek preapproval.
Guardianship Credits
NGA’s conference is approved for guardianship continuing education credits by the Center for Guardianship Certification (CGC) and the California Fiduciary Bureau. The verified certificate is accepted as proof of attendance for these organizations, as well as for Texas Guardianship Certification. NGA also applies to CE Broker (Florida Public Guardian Office) and Professional Guardian Certification Board of Washington State. Certificate fees apply to receive Guardianship CEUs for Florida and Washington. Click here to download the order form for Florida and Washington.
