Continuing Education Units
How to Earn CEUs
The Building Performance Association works with accrediting bodies to offer continuing education units at our regional and national events. During online event registration, you will be prompted to indicate the CEUs that you are interested in receiving at the event, as well as your certifying body membership numbers. When you arrive onsite at the event and check in at registration, you’ll receive a name badge with a bar code, which contains your CEU information. Please have the session assistant scan your badge after each workshop or session that you attend. Verification of your attendance will automatically be sent to the applicable certifying bodies.
If you have already registered but did not include CEUs during your initial registration, you may go back into registration and select “Update an Existing Registration.” CEUs for each session will be listed on the conference website and onsite on the Day-at-a-Glance, the conference’s daily schedule.
For questions related to earning CEUs, contact Bethany Sowinski at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (412) 424-0026.
Certificate of Attendance
Do you need verification for your employer, or personal records, that you attended a conference? In order to recieve a Certificate of Attendance, you must attend at least nine workshops/sessions at the national conference and five sessions at a regional conference. (Please note that the general session is not eligible for credit). At the conclusion of a session or workshop you have attended, ask the session assistant to scan the bar code on your conference admittance badge. Certificates of Attendance are emailed after the conference, to the email address provided on your registration. Certificates of Attendance do not list the specific sessions attended.
A transcript lists all sessions that were attended at the conference, including the session title, date and session length. A transcript of courses is available for purchase at registration and is emailed to the attendee approximately two weeks after the event. A transcript is recommended to provide to continuing education accrediting bodies for CEUs not provided by Building Performance Association and that require verification of attendance.
If you would like to purchase the transcripts after you have already attended an event, please contact ExpoTrac at (401) 766-4142. Only transcripts from 2011 to present are available.
