Another option for renewing your designation is to attend or participate in other approved conferences, seminars or educational programs (see a list of approved programs). Once you have attended an approved program, you must notify us by providing the Completer Code from the Certificate of Completion that the program provider gives you and pay the registration fee. Notify us of your attendance at an approved program.
