Of the 25 CEUs available at NATA 2018, 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 will be seven events at convention eligible for EBP CEUs. Some of the EBP events run concurrently so registrants will be able to attend up to four of the seven events. The BOC Approved EBP Programs for 2018 will be announced soon.

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

Evaluations must be completed and turned in by a deadline (to be determined later) to receive EBP CEUs. Participants are encouraged to complete the evaluations as they’re received each day to ensure they are completed on time. If evaluations aren’t submitted by the deadline, participants will receive category A CEUs for the event. Have your registration number ready as you will need to enter it to complete the evaluation.

If the evaluation email doesn’t make it to your inbox, check your junk/spam folder. If it’s not there, email knowledgeinitiatives@nata.org with the email address to which you need the evaluation link sent. It is the attendee’s responsibility to let NATA know if they didn’t receive the evaluation email.


Statements of Credit

In line with BOC requirements, NATA provides statements of credit post-event. Approximately one month after convention ends, an email will be sent to all eligible registrants with confirmed attendance with instructions on how to access and print their statements of credit .
