There will be one CE certificate provided per course per attendee. It is the GA Licensees responsibility to obtain 10 technical c.e. hours per biennial renewal cycle. The OAG will provide as many technical hours as are available at all continuing education meetings.
*In an abundance of caution for the safety of our Members and Staff, the following Protocols and Procedures have been implemented in which NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE:
-The Meeting space will be in a configuration that will adhere to social distancing.
-Onsite registration will only be available IF spaces are not sold out.
-ALL attendees and staff will be required to wear masks which the OAG will provide masks at no charge.
-ALL attendees and staff will be screened before allowed entrance which will include a temperature check.

A strict protocol of 1 CE per course attended will be enforced.  Late arrivals will not be permitted to attend classes already in session.  As of April 1, 2017, the GSBDO now requires 1 hour of GA Law continuing education as part of the 10 hours required for biennial (2 yr.) licensed renewal.
