FDC CE Verification

CE verification is automatically provided for all attendees. To receive CE credit for course attendance, attendees must scan their badge at the entry door of the course and upon exiting. They system will then calculate the amount of time an attendee is present and award the credit appropriately. In order to receive 1 hour of CE credit, an attendee must be present in a course a minimum of 50 of the 60 minutes. 

FDC201​​9 attendees were emailed their CE certificate automatically ​by June 2​7, 201​9. Attendees can also obtain a printed CE verification certificate at any time after the end of the course. ​During the convention, CE stations ​were located on the classroom level from Thursday through Saturday, 7 a.m to 5:30 p.m. CE certificates can be accessed for free online on the FDC website until Sept. 1, 201​​9. After that date, there is a cost to obtain a CE certificate. Only credit for full course attendance ​were automatically added to your CE certificate. Credit for partial course attendance was added to CE certificates no later than July 2​7, 2019.

All verified course attendance ​was automatically submitted to CE Broker for Florida licensed dentists and hygienist on their behalf no later than July 2​7, 20​19. Your CE certificate listed all purchased courses (except credit for partial course attendance, which ​was added to CE certificates no later than July 2​7, 201​9), however credit will not be reported to CE Broker for NC course codes. NC courses will be listed as zero credit hours on your CE certificate as these courses are none-credit. Each state varies on what is accepted for CE and those courses, NC courses can be self-reported to CE Broker after the event, should your organizing Board of Dentistry accept those courses.
