The portion of that credit relevant to advanced psychopharmacology training is listed next - for instance, '.75 ap' would indicate that half of the 1.5 credit session will focus on advanced psychopharmacology.  AMA PRA Category-1 credits are valid for all behavioral health and medical professions.

Payment Instructions

  • We accept payment by credit card and check, as well as on site.  For your convenience and to reduce check-in time at the conference, we encourage pre-payment of your registration fees.

    Check Payments
    To pay by check, select the 'pay by check' option during checkout.  You can mail your check to us at 1120 Huffman Rd., Ste 24 #751  Anchorage, AK  99515.

    Group Registrations
    Group registration can be coordinated by a single payer through our online registration and payment gateway, allowing an agent to register one or more applicants and make a single payment.  If a third party or agency is paying for your registration by credit card, they will need to register themselves first as a Non-Attending Group Coordinator, as our system requires that all credit card payments be charged to the first registrant.  No fee will be charged for a coordinator's registration (as it is for billing purposes only) and they will not be listed on our attendance roster.  Additional registrants may be added after the Non-Attending Group Coordinator's information.
