Revised August 22, 2018
Self-scanning stations will be located in the back of each room. Simply hold the QR-coded badge up to the scanner; the system will beep/flash and the attendee’s name will appear on the screen. If the attendee registered within 2 weeks of the conference, their name may not appear when scanned. Their CEUs will still be recorded, however, by linking the alphanumeric code on the badge to the registered scans.
The session will be recorded, and a timestamp will record when each scan took place.
Staff will help direct attendees and switch scanners between “In” and “Out” session setup.
When can I view my continuing education?
CE will be uploaded to the ABB/PEER database and FL CE Broker within 30 days of the close of conference. To receive credit with Florida, you must provide the ABB office with your complete Florida license number by submitting it to staff at the registration desk or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I view which sessions I attended?
A lump sum total for the conference will be uploaded to your PEER record. For details on specific sessions attended please contact the AAB office.
Will CE credits be automatically transmitted to my State CE Record?
No, if your state requires CE credit, please contact the ABB office or staff at the registration area for required paperwork.
What if I forget to scan in/out?
It is the responsibility of the attendee to scan into and out of each session. Incomplete records (i.e., no “in” or no “out”) will NOT be counted.
If you are unsure whether your scan was recorded, scan your badge again. Note: there is no penalty for duplicate scans. If you feel you are still having issues, please see the AAB staff at the registration area.
What if a session ends early or runs long?
If a session runs longer than the time allotted, the participant will only receive the maximum contact hours that were approved for that session (i.e., if a session is scheduled and approved for 1 hour, only 1 hour will be awarded even if it runs longer than one hour).
However, if sessions run shorter than the time allotted, participants will still receive the full credit for that session (e.g., if a session is scheduled and approved for 1 contact hour [0.1 CEUs], but only runs for 45 minutes, it will be awarded 1 contact hour [0.1 CEUs] as scheduled).
What if I need to step out of the room during a session?
It is not necessary to scan out for a short break during a session (e.g., to take a brief phone call or use the restroom), but attendees should scan out if they may be out of the room for an extended period (e.g., 15 minutes or more). Remember to scan in again when you return. Attendees should scan out for any official breaks or lunches.
