Certificates of Attendance

All ICISF training participants will be awarded general Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from UMBC on their Certificate of Attendance. At the end of the Regional Training you will receive a course evaluation via email. After completing the course evaluation you will be emailed a link to print your certificate.  All participants are required to check in at the ICISF Registration Desk before the start of your course each day in order to verify attendance.

UMBC CEUs are awarded at a ratio of one Continuing Education Unit for every 10 Contact Hours (refer to course descriptions for Contact Hours & UMBC CEUs). ICISF Certificates of Attendance are not proof of profession specific CE/Contact Hours. Many national, state and local licensing boards and professional organizations will grant Continuing Education credit for attendance at our courses (save this information and your Certificate of Attendance). It is the responsibility of the participant to determine if his or her licensing board will accept these CEUs. Scroll down for additional profession specific CE information
