Continuing Education Submission Instructions

DMEC provides continuing education for our webinars throughout the year. Below are requirements and submission instructions for each of the designations and certifications covered. Please note: Not all webinars qualify for CLMS CEUs. Review each event to determine if it qualifies.

If you registered for and attended a live webinar, you will receive a certificate of attendance and CEU verification/activity ID codes for the event. If you registered for a webinar, but did not attend live, you will receive a link to the webinar recording and will have the opportunity to watch the recording and earn continuing education.
