Event Information

Interact with the Presenters

During each ABMP CE Socials event, you’ll have the opportunity to submit questions to the presenter in the chat room. Take advantage of this opportunity to interact with and ask questions of your mentors! After the course, the instructor will be with you via video feed for a live Q&A session. 

CE Credit

All attendees—ABMP members and nonmembers—will have the opportunity to earn CE credit for the course by passing a short online quiz. CE certificates will be available after the event in the ABMP Education Center.
