You must attend at least three, one-hour sessions (including general sessions), a one-half day or a full-day workshop equivalent to 0.3 CEUs to earn one activity credit.

Participants in the first year of the 100-Percent EM Cap and One Claim programs must all attend three hours of training, equivalent to 0.3 CEUs.
