The “All or Nothing Rule” 

LPCAGA approves professional workshops as required by and according to current Georgia Composite Board rules. The “All or Nothing Rule” states that a workshop participant must attend the workshop in its entirety to receive any CE credit. Participants will receive no partial CE credit for attending part of a workshop or less than all scheduled days if it continues over one day. Short absences may be allowed by a participant’s professional or personal urgent situation may be approved by the workshop provider or monitor may approve. However, the participant must return to the workshop without delay. Abuse of this consideration is grounds for denial of the CE certificate. Arriving late or leaving early is not an acceptable excuse by current standards.
