CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS

Continuing education credits are sponsored either directly through LeadingAge Texas or through its subsidiary, the Educational Institute on Aging (EIA). Credentialing bodies and licensing boards have the final authority on the acceptance of individual courses. Please note that total hours quoted assume attendance at one of the Networking Sessions and Power Sessions (where applicable). For all disciplines, credit may only be obtained for one seminar per timeslot. Credit hours listed reflect the maximum hours possible for an attendee in a single discipline.

Please be sure to read each session description fully and verify the types of education credits offered
before choosing which sessions to attend.

NOTE: LeadingAge Texas is currently seeking approval for most sessions. Hours & credit types offered are subject to change based on approval.
LeadingAge Texas will updated this page and the designations listed within each session in the Education Programming page accordingly.
