Step 1. Verification of Attendance
Once you complete and submit your Verification of Attendance form, you may continue on to Step 2 or 3:
- If you are wanting to claim Self-Assessment credit, select and complete desired Self-Assessment exams (see Step 2). Self-Assessment exams broken down by Sunday/Monday/Tuesday.
- If you are not wanting to claim Self-Assessment credit, you may skip Step 2 and complete the Course Evaluation (see Step 3).
Step 2. Self-Assessment Exams
You may elect to take all, part or none of the self-assessment exam.
If you choose NOT to take any portions of the exam,
go to Step 4 to download your CME Certificate.
A passing score of 75% or higher is required to receive self-assessment credit for a portion of the meeting. Upon submitting your answers, you will immediately find out if you passed or failed, and which questions were answered incorrectly.
You may take an exam an unlimited number of times.
Once you have passed all portions of the exam for which you are seeking credit, your certificate will be available from the site for you to download to your computer (Step 4).
If you do not pass all portions of the exam, you will not receive the self-assessment credits for that portion.*A hard copy of the self-assessment exam is available at the registration desk, if you would like to view the entire exam as a reference.
Step 3. Course Evaluation
The Course Evaluation form must be completed prior to moving on to Step 4.
