Continuing Education Credit


You can earn one continuing education contact hour (CE) for each hour of attendance at:

  • Pre-conference Learning Institutes (separate registration fee required)
  • American Red Cross Training (pre-registration required)
  • Keynote Sessions (partial credit applies)
  • Education Sessions
  • Roundtable Sessions

Please note: 30-minute Poster Sessions are not approved for CE credit.

Most attendees will be able to accumulate 15 CEs during the core conference days; however, you can earn up to 18 additional CEs by attending two full days of Pre-conference Learning Institutes. That way you can return home with up to 33 CE credits! Attendance is monitored and you must attend 100% of the session to receive credit. Partial credit will not be awarded.

ACA is pleased to provide electronic evaluations and continuing education credits to attendees. Complete a session evaluation for each session you attended during conference at the CE/ Evaluation kiosks near the registration area or after Conference at After the conference, you will be able to print off a copy of your CE certificate from your personal computer at no additional costs!
