Programs not pre-approved:

Have you attended an educational program you believe should qualify for education points? If so, have the program reviewed by submitting the member application for education points and the detailed, timed agenda for the program. 

Are you thinking of attending a program and want to know whether the program will qualify for education points? You can also send in the member application for education points to find out.
