Will the CEUs be accepted by my particular discipline or association (social work, psychology, etc.)?

The CEUs are not pre-approved with any particular discipline. We suggest recipients submit their CEU certificate along with a description of the sessions to their professional organization(s) to ask if the content meets their requirements. It will be the discretion of the professional organization(s) whether they choose to accept as credit.

The NCORE team gratefully receives and processes conference evaluation data, comments, and other forms of feedback. In response, we have made some adjustments in an effort to improve attendee experience where we can. A letter was emailed to the NCORE community following NCORE 2022. NCORE staff are working on the feedback and improvements we're making following NCORE 2023. We will send that out as soon as possible. Thank you!
