Of the 25 CEUs available at NATA 2019, there is a potential for five of them to be Evidence-Based Practice category CEUs.

BOC Approved EBP Programs will feature this “EBP” icon:




There are seven events at convention eligible for EBP CEUs, some of which run concurrently, so registrants will be able to attend up to four of the seven events and earn up to 5 EBP CEUs.

To receive EBP CEUs, participants must complete an online evaluation for each EBP event attended. Each day during convention, eligible attendees with confirmed attendance will receive an email containing links to the evaluations for that day’s events. These emails will be sent to the email address used to register for convention.

Completed evaluations must be submitted by July 31 to receive EBP CEUs. Participants are encouraged to complete the evaluations as they are received each day to ensure they are completed on time. If evaluations are not submitted by the deadline, participants may claim Category A CEUs for the event. Your convention registration number will be needed to complete the evaluation. If the evaluation emails don’t make it to your inbox, check your junk/spam folder. If it is not there, email knowledgeinitiatives@nata.org with the email address to which you need the evaluation links sent. It is the attendee’s responsibility to let NATA know if they don’t receive the evaluation email prior to the July 31 deadline. After you complete the evaluation, you will receive an email listing the sessions you rated. Be sure to complete the evaluation(s) for any EBP session(s) you wish to claim.


Statements of Credit

In line with BOC requirements, NATA provides statements of credit post-event. After the evaluation period closes on July 31, an email will be sent to all confirmed attendees eligible for CEUs, with instructions on how to access and print their statement of credit. This email will be sent by mid-August.

It is the attendee’s responsibility to check their statement of credit, upon receipt, to confirm it is accurate. If you have a question about your statement, email knowledgeinitiatives@nata.org.
