Earn Continuing education credits by participating in:

  • Plenary Presentations
  • Symposia
  • Moderated Panel Discussions
  • Events as noted

Recognizing that not all disciplines require continuing education (CE) annually, FICTBI chooses not to roll the cost of CE processing into CORE Conference registration. If you need CE credits, a $99 (Regular Rate), $149 (On-Site) processing fee will cover the Conference (11 – 13 June) credit hours for which you qualify.

ONLINE DELIVERY OF CME/CEU CERTIFICATES

Session Evaluation and Continuing Education Certificates

  • Simple online submission
  • Credits/Hours/Units are correlated to the attended conference hours and the requirements of the specific accrediting organizations
  • A single processing fee ($99 regular, $149 on-site) entitles attendees to all certificates for which they qualify
  • Certificates will be awarded to those participants who attend the conference, pay the processing fee and complete an online session evaluation.

Credit is only given to attendees that successfully complete the entire course and evaluate the course.  The maximum contact hours earned is 19.  The credit amount will vary depending on the CE approver.

FICTBI Educational Conference session evaluations are electronic.  After the conference you will receive an email with a link to the evaluation system.  Please click on the link and begin to evaluate each session you attended.  There will be separate evaluations for the Pre-Conference and the Core Conference.

When you are finished, you’ll be directed to evaluate the overall conference.  Your opinion is important to us!

After you have completed the session evaluations and the overall conference evaluation, an email will be automatically generated to you.  In that email, you will be able to click on the link and print your certificate.  Remember that the site is automatically calculating your credit.  If you miss evaluating a session you attended, you will be a credit short!  Also, occasionally your email invitation goes to spam, please check there if you have not received the link to evaluate in a timely way. Please contact Kim Ruff at (217) 753-1190 or email kruff@firminc.com with questions.

  • occupational therapists
  • speech-language professionals

Interdisciplinary exchange, interaction, and cooperation are the cornerstones of optimal patient care. Educational opportunities that promote interprofessional learning and collaboration are needed to advance clinical and scientific research and its subsequent translation to clinical practice.
