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 in order to receive any CE credit. No partial CE credit may be given for attending part of a workshop or less than all scheduled days if continued over more than one day. Short absences that are required by a participant’s professional or personal urgent situation may be approved by the workshop provider and/or monitor. 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.
