Can I get a Certificate of Attendance?
Yes, we can provide a certificate of attendance at the end of the convention. The certificate is a formal document given to individuals who attended the convention and can serve as proof of attendance or participation. It can also be useful for obtaining continuing education credits from other professional associations.

Can I earn Continuing Education (CE) Credits?
Social workers and registered nurses can earn CE credits by attending sessions at NAMICon. The exact number of hours will be finalized in May. At previous conventions, we have offered up to 21 credits at our in-person conventions. For this year’s virtual convention, we may offer up to 10 credits.

NAMI is a certified provider through the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the California Board of Registered Nursing. Please check with your specific agency to verify that they accept credits from these sources, the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the California Board of Registered Nursing.

Is there a charge for the Continuing Education (CE) Credits or Certificates of Attendance?
No, we are not charging for continuing education units (CEU), continuing education (CE) credits or the Certificate of Attendance.
