As we continue to monitor and evaluate COVID-19 levels, we understand that the health and safety of our members, staff, and the community are of highest concern. We are asking everyone to do their part. NWPPA and local venues will follow applicable federal, state, and local health protocols. Assumption of Risk: COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. It is not possible for NWPPA or anyone else to completely prevent the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to attend a conference organized by NWPPA and voluntarily enter onto premises where its conference is held, you are accepting the risk, without right of claim against NWPPA and its directors, employees, or agents, of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 and its variants.
This course qualifies for 18 continuing hours. Certificates are available upon full completion of the course.
