Can I earn continuing education credit by attending educational programs sponsored by the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans?
Any individual can receive verification of attendance for continuing education credit for license renewal or for personal records. However, because licensing credit is subject to provincial/professional regulations, this service should be requested at least 90 days before the start of the program.
How can I request this service?
List your profession(s) and, if applicable, the province(s) of licensing and license number on the continuing education request portion of the registration form; or, contact the Registration Department toll free toll free (888) 334-3327, option 2.
How is my continuing education credit verified?
If you request continuing education credit in advance of the program, a set of personalized attendance forms will be included in the registration packet you receive on-site. The completed forms verify attendance at specific sessions. NOTE: If you requested continuing education at the time you registered but did not receive continuing education forms in your packet, PLEASE SEE an International Foundation representative on site. You may also request continuing education on site at the registration desk and receive blank attendance forms.
One (1) form must be completed for each session. The session number, date, time and title must be filled out manually and each form must be signed.
At the conclusion of each session, leave the form for that session with a meeting room attendant. Due to license board regulations, forms can only be accepted at the end of the session as you exit the room.
Why do I have to fill out so many forms?
Some provinces require sign-in, sign-out sheets; the completed continuing education forms signed individually meet these requirements.
Also, if an individual's continuing education report is audited by a licensing board, we can provide a record of that individual's attendance—including verification that the subject matter of sessions attended is in compliance with continuing education regulations.
How is my credit recorded and reported?
A Continuing Education Certificate is produced based on the continuing education forms submitted by the attendee. Each certificate is personalized to provide information regarding credit in the province(s) of licensing, i.e., sponsor ID number, assigned course number and total hours of accepted credit.
Is it necessary that I have this Continuing Education Certificate?
Yes. We also will keep a copy of your certificate along with the continuing education forms you submitted. Governing agencies require attendance records be maintained for a minimum of five years by the sponsor. The certificate and attendance forms meet these requirements.
Is there a charge for this service?
Can I earn continuing education units for attendance at programs?
No. CEUs are issued by some educational institutions and professional associations as a uniform unit of measurement for participation in noncredit continuing education. We do not issue CEUs.
