The Board frequently receives requests to award continuing education credits for various educational activities. Each request is analyzed for content, speaker(s) qualities and duration. The number of credit hours and credit type are then determined. Sponsoring organizations who are awarded credits are encouraged to announce this within their promotional materials.
If you are considering registration for an activity that does not carry NBDHMT credits contact the activity director. They may have failed to post this information. They may have also neglected to apply and your prompting may encourage them to do so. You can contact the Board, where a record of all approved activities is maintained.
I wanted to run through all of this because the Board occasionally receives a call from someone who attended a program and had hoped to use its hours towards recertification, only to learn that no credits were awarded. Save yourself this angst and a potential costly outlay by checking first.
