Continuing Education Certificates and Approval


  1. Track attended sessions. In the attendee packet of information, a paper form has been provided for all attendees to keep track of their session attendance by writing down the specific word announced at the beginning and end of each session. Without this word, attendees will be unable to receive credit for the session attended. Please note, session tracking is solely the responsibility of the attendee, and NAADAC cannot be held responsible for this information. Missed words will not be given out after the session. Please make sure you know the word before leaving the end of the session.

  2. Enter attendance info online. Sign-in to your NAADAC profile using the same sign-in information used to register for the conference. If you are unable to remember your sign-in information, please use the retrieval link on the sign-in page. Please contact NAADAC at or call 703.741.7686 for assistance. Once you have successfully logged in, click on the My Quizzes link on your landing page. Follow the links to the 2016 Conference Evaluations. Locate and click on the name of the annual conference educational session you attended from the list, then enter the word of the session to verify your attendance. By completing the evaluations for a CE certificate, you are attesting to attending the associated educational session at the NAADAC Annual Conference. Applying for CE credit for an educational session you did not attend is an ethical violation and NAADAC will pursue offenders. Press “Start.”

  3. Complete each evaluation question based on your experience during the educational session. After all evaluation questions are complete, your CE certificate for the educational session will appear automatically for you to print now or save for later, and a copy will be emailed to you automatically. Repeat the steps for each educational session attended to obtain all earned CEs for the NAADAC Annual Conference. Please note only NAADAC CE credit is available for Poster Sessions.
