Things To Do
Continuing Education
Please be sure to have your attendance verification sheets out and ready at the beginning of all sessions. NGA moderators will announce codes twice during each session; be sure to arrive at each session on time and remain throughout the session. Should you miss one of the codes, please insert the time you arrived/left the session in place of the code. Be sure to write the codes down at the time the moderator gives them, as they will not be available at any other time. Please do not share codes with other attendees as this is a requirement to verify attendance for continuing education credit; falsifying information can result in loss of education hours for all attendees.
Program Credit Hours
This conference program holds a potential of 21.75 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 October. 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 by calling NGA at 877-326-5992, ext. 2.
Proof of Attendance
NGA moderators will announce two codes during each session: one at the beginning of the session and another near the end of 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 your participation should you need record of it in the future.
Verified Certificate of Attendance
The conference 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 pre-approval.
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.
Continuing Legal Education Credits
NGA has applied to offer Continuing Legal Education credit in Colorado. Certificate fees apply to receive a legal certificate. Individuals outside of Colorado seeking legal credits should contact their state boards prior to the conference to see if their process requires a legal or a verified certificate. A verified certificate is included with the conference fee.
Social Work Credits
NGA applies for social work credits with the NASW and any states that do not accept NASW certification. For a certificate documenting the pre-approved social work credits, a fee will be required.
Issuing of Certificates
To issue your certificate in a timely manner, NGA must receive your attendance sign-in sheets (which will be enclosed in the conference packet) before you leave the conference. Certificates are downloaded online. All certificates ordered before the conference will be issued within 30 days of the conference. Attendees are urged to check their conference packets upon arrival to obtain the most current continuing education information.
