Important Information About Our CE Policy:
Ridgeview’s policy for issuing continuing education credits is
based upon State Law and guidelines set forth by the Georgia
Composite Board which state that “participants must attend the
entire presentation in order to receive continuing education
credit.” If you are more than 15 minutes late in arriving for a
seminar, you will not be allowed to enter until the first break.
You will be welcome to remain for the balance of the
presentation, but we will not be able to issue continuing
education credits to you as a participant. This is according to
agency regulations requiring attendance at the entire
presentation in order for CEs to be issued. This policy
applies to early departures as well – if you leave more than 15
minutes early, we will not be able to issue CEs for your
participation. We will also not be able to issue you a
refund for the registration fee, since we have a stated refund
policy and we will have already counted on your presence in
planning for the seminar. We instituted this policy in an
effort to cut down on unnecessary interruptions during the
presentation and to ensure that our accreditation to offer CEs
is not put into jeopardy. It is our goal to continue to provide
you with quality, reasonably priced opportunities to acquire
credits needed for your license renewal. Please plan to arrive
early or on time for these events. We offer refreshments for
your enjoyment before each seminar.
