37th ISS Continuing Education Units
The 37th ISS offers CEUs for courses that comply with University of Pittsburgh standards. All ISS sessions have an abstract, speaker bios, speaker disclosures of real or potential conflicts of interest, measurable learning objectives, and references to comply with most CEU standards.
How to Earn CEUs
Attendance to sessions (and subsequent CEU delivery) is verified with a survey that includes a course post-test and evaluation. To receive CEUs, attendees will need to complete surveys for each session.
Attendees can access their surveys by logging into the Attendee Hub or mobile app:
Please note you can only take the survey for sessions you are registered for. However, you can change your registration at any time. Thus, if you attend a session that you did not originally intend to, you can change your registration to that session, then take its subsequent survey. This can be done in either the Attendee Hub or mobile app. Following the ISS, after you have completed all your surveys, CEU certificates will be send out via email.
Amount of CEUs at the 37th ISS
Up to 1.70 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) can be earned by individuals attending 17 hours of instruction at the main ISS conference sessions. Additional CEUs are awarded for pre-conference workshops. (0.4 CEUs for half-day workshops, 0.8 CEUs for full-day workshops).
CEU Certificates are issued electronically via email attachment. After attending the 37th ISS, attendees are required to log back into www.seatingsymposium.us, complete an overall ISS conference evaluation and course evaluations for each individual session attended.
A unique course identification code is provided at the end of each session that must be entered. The CEU certificate is prorated based on sessions actually attended with course evaluations and unique session codes.
Information for Specific Credentials
The University of Pittsburgh, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences awards Continuing Education Units to individuals who enroll in certain educational activities. The CEU is designated to give recognition to individuals who continue their education in order to stay current in their profession. (One CEU is equivalent to 10 hours of participation in an organized continuing education activity.) Each person should claim only those hours of credit that they actually spent in the educational activity.

The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, Inc. (NBCOT) accepts the University’s CEUs as PDUs for OTR and COTA re-certification.
