IHCA/INCAL Continuing Education Program Attendance Policy
The Indiana Professional Licensing Board (IPLA) requires that sponsors of Continuing Education programs monitor the attendance of all programs in such a way that verification of attendance throughout the program can be readily assured. To obtain credit for an IHCA/INCAL sponsored Continuing Education program, attendees must successfully participate in and complete the entire program. In-person trainings are monitored by IHCA/INCAL staff or a designated representative and a check-in process. Webinar trainings are monitored by a minute-by-minute attendance monitoring technology system to ensure compliance with the IPLA requirements.
The National Association of Long Term Care Administrators / National Continuing Education Review Service (NAB / NCERS) requires the Provider/Sponsor to provide a means of monitoring
attendance that will ensure that attendees only receive credit for time present at the seminar. At a minimum, this will include monitoring attendance throughout the day for all programs
exceeding ½ day by recording attendance not only upon initiation and completion of the program but also at least once during the course of the program through a means identified and described by the Provider/Sponsor.
Note: Registration for webinars closes at 5 pm EST the prior day.
All sessions begin at 10 a.m. ET and end at 11:15 or 11:30 ET.
Fee: IHCA/INCAL Members $55 per facility, per session; Non-members $110 per facility, per session.
