Accreditation of learning hours

Each participant will receive a name badge upon registration. Badges must be worn at all times to enable session attendance to be tracked for education accreditation. On your badge is a barcode which is scanned on entering and leaving each session hall. Credits will be assigned according to information received from the barcode system. This information is also used for safety reasons to record participants actually in the building in case of emergency. Therefore it is important you present your badge with barcode at each session hall.
