Certificates of Attendance

All ICISF conference participants will be awarded general Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from UMBC on their attendance certificate. These attendance certificates are distributed on-site at the completion of each course. All attendees are required to check in at the ICISF Registration Desk before 10:00 a.m. each day in order to verify attendance.
Participants who do not pick up their certificate on site at the conference must contact the ICISF office to have their certificate mailed and may be charged an additional fee. If pre-payment or invoicing instructions (Purchase Order) is not provided, Certificates of Attendance will be withheld from attendees until full payment is received by ICISF.

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.

Group Discounts

Discounts are available to groups of five or more registrants. All online registrations or registration forms must be submitted together along with single payment method. The group discount may not be applied retroactively. For additional information please contact Michelle W, Conference Coordinator
