The “All or Nothing Rule” states that a workshop participant must attend the workshop in its entirety 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.
