To claim credit for sessions you attend in their entirety (or to receive a general certificate of completion), please follow these steps:
  1. Download a printable session checklist (subject to change) to track the sessions you attend. The checklist also notes which sessions are approved by NCHEC for advanced-level (MCHES) credits and by HRCI. This form is for your own tracking purposes and does NOT need to be turned in to conference organizers.

  2. Complete the CEC Request & Session Evaluation form by July 31. The form will be available below to signed-in attendees beginning July 19. If requesting CHES® or MCHES® credits, please be prepared to enter your CHES number.

    The number of CECs awarded will be based on sessions you attend in full that you rate on this form, so ensure you have completed the entire survey and have attended all desired sessions before submitting it. The form can only be submitted once.

  3. Beginning August 4, visit the Certificates tab in your LearnWELL account to download your CEC certificate(s). The certificate will indicate the total number of CECs earned by attending sessions July 19-21, 2023.

    Please note that NWI submits CHES/MCHES contact hours earned to NCHEC quarterly. Additionally, if you are an active Certified Wellness Practitioner (CWP), your Professional Development Journal will be updated with verified Category 1 CECs earned by August 4.
