Obtain CEs for the Annual Alaska Training Institute

  1. Find the sessions you attended:  Once you have logged in, you will see a list of sessions for the dates that you were registered. Locate and click on the name of the educational session you attended at the Annual Alaska Training Institute from the list.
     
  2. Complete the Evaluation: By completing the evaluations for a CE certificate, you are attesting to attending the associated educational session at the Annual Alaska Training Insitute. Applying for CE credit for an educational session you did not attend is an ethical violation and NAADAC will pursue offenders.
     
  3. Enter the Session Word for that session, and then complete each evaluation question based on your experience during the educational session.
     
  4. 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. A copy will also be emailed to you automatically.
     
  5. Repeat the steps for each educational session attended to obtain all earned CEs for the Annual Alaska Training Insitute.
