NCURA is offering a certificate program during the FRA Conference, March 5-6, 2018. Registrants of the conference can pick one certificate to earn. You cannot earn multiple certificates during one conference. There are 8 time slots during the conference. Participants must attend 8 total sessions, 5 sessions in their certificate area, and the other 3 sessions are considered electives and can be in any track. Spark sessions and breakfast roundtable sessions do not apply.
Steps to participate:
Register for the conference. There is no additional fee to request a certificate.
Identify the certificate you would like to earn. Final session lists, times and worksheets to track your certificate, will be available by February 28, on this page. Print your worksheet before attending the conference to help you plan and to track your progress.
Attend one eligible concurrent session or discussion group during each of the 8 timeslots. At least 5 of the 8 sessions must be selections from the worksheet. For the remaining 3 time slots, you can choose from the worksheet, or from another area of interest. You will record your sessions and submit online. The URL will be included on the worksheet you will use to keep track of your sessions on site at the conference.
Complete your certificate request electronically by March 31. Certificates will be issued in mid-April.
