Most educational programs offered during the 2016 NFDA International Convention & Expo will be held on the street level of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, accessed from the Broad Street entrance. The general sessions and special engagement will be held in the Terrace Ballroom on level 4. For details about CE options on any given day, be sure to pick up the 2016 NFDA Convention Program & Planner when you get to Philly.
Since seating is limited, plan to arrive at all workshops in advance of the scheduled start time.
To earn CE credit for attendance, you must attend a minimum of 50 minutes for one-hour sessions or 100 minutes for two-hour sessions. Doors close promptly at the scheduled start time, and it is the policy of NFDA not to admit anyone 10 minutes after a session begins in accordance with state licensing board requirements.
Check to see which workshops are approved in your state!
Don’t forget to be scanned on your way out the door!
As you exit each CE session, the QR code on your official convention badge will be scanned. You can only be scanned for a session when it concludes.
It is your responsibility to submit a Certificate of Participation to your state or province licensing board/s and/or the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice (APFSP), as required by their guidelines. As of November 30, 2016, you will be able to access your certificates online to verify your workshop attendance (as confirmed by scanning data) by logging into www.nfda.org, then > My Profile > Education History & Certifications.
IMPORTANT: Because state CE regulations vary, not all sessions are approved for credit by all states. The latest CE information for individual states is posted near the workshop rooms.
Did you miss a workshop or want to share one with staff back home? Visit NFDA Central for information on purchasing DVD recordings of selected workshops that are marked with a DVD symbol.
And a gentle reminder…
Please respect our presenters and other attendees by turning off your cellphone before a session begins. Thank you.
An Important Message for International Members
When you have attended at least five workshops, go to International Registration where you will be issued a Certificate of Completion. You have until noon only on Wednesday, October 26, to obtain your Certificate at Registration. To qualify, you must have your official convention badge scanned as you exit every educational session that you fully attend.
Workshops and general sessions that will be translated into Spanish are marked with a headphone symbol. Headsets are available for checkout near the workshop rooms on the street level of the convention center.
