Continuing Education.

Approved Continuing Education (CE) credits for individual presentations are noted on the 'Presentation' page as they are confirmed. Please note that not all presentations are approved for the same credits from each provider. Review carefully what presentation will apply for CE's for your profession before selecting what to attend.

***While we have done our best to provide information for each profession via the Delaware Code for Licensing/Certification, if you are unsure if CE's provided apply to your professional license, please contact the licensing/certification office directly.***

Certificates of attendance will be made available on-site once the Inspiring Hope Conference has concluded
