Attendance Policy

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits.

There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. At present, NYSED does not allow granting partial credit for approved continuing education events.

If there are any changes in State regulation, this policy will be updated accordingly.
