ICISF COURSES

San Diego CISM Team partners with The international Critical Incident Stress Foundation at our yearly conference. Continuing Education credits and Certificates of Attendance are presented to all paid attendees upon completion of courses. Below, you will find a complete listing on the basics of our conference in conjunction with ICISF (http://ICISF.org).

All ICISF conference participants will be awarded general Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from UMBC on their attendance certificate. These attendance certificates are distributed on-site at the completion of each course. All attendees are required to check in at the ICISF Registration Desk before 9:00 a.m. each day in order to verify attendance. Participants who do not pick up their certificate on site at the conference must contact the ICISF office to have their certificate mailed and may be charged an additional fee. If pre-payment or invoicing instructions (Purchase Order) is not provided, Certificates of Attendance will be withheld from attendees until full payment is received by ICISF. UMBC CEUs are awarded at a ratio of one Continuing Education Unit for every 10 Contact Hours (refer to course descriptions for Contact Hours & UMBC CEUs). ICISF certificates of attendance are not proof of profession specific CE/Contact Hours. Many national, state and local licensing boards and professional organizations will grant Continuing Education credit for attendance at our courses (save this information and your Certificate of Attendance). It is the responsibility of the participant to determine if his or her licensing board will accept these CEUs.
