Earning CEs and CE Certificates

AONP uses the latest technology to scan and verify attendance. A small tag, located in your name badge, communicates with readers located at the ballroom entry doors. Please wear your name badge to accurately record your attendance. AANP requires attendees to complete an individual session evaluation to receive CEs for each lecture. Evaluations can be found on the agenda - click the lecture's speaker name. An overall conference evaluation must be completed by each attendee and can be found on the last line of the agenda next to the conference ajourned wording. ALL EVALUATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN TWO WEEKS. We provide your conference 2021 AONP CE Certificates after all evaluations are complete. If you have completed all conference evaluations and do not receive your CE Certificate within two weeks; check your spam and junk folders, then notify Susie Brown at susie@npofoklahoma.com.
