Is my attendance badge sufficient proof?

No.  Be certain to obtain a Certificate of Attendance if you go to a conference or take a course.  Without this document, we cannot give you Continuing Education credit. Your certificate must show:

  •  your name;
  • subject of the conference or course (the subject must match with what the Board rules require),
    • break-out sessions you attended (if a conference);and
  • number of approved Continuing Education credits earned.

A certificate that says “23d Annual Technological Brouhaha” tells us very little about whether you walked through an exhibit hall or whether you sat through an 8-hour course on GIS advancements and their implications on land surveying.
