When the Calendar page displays an Event Detail panel, the Calendar Search button is visible to click to return to the Calendar Search page.

An event may show many or few details, according to the amount of information available for the event. Information may include:

Viewing Event Session and Approved Continuing Education Credit Details

Approved Continuing Education (CE) Credits are displayed for sessions that have been approved (accepted) for credit.

Credits that are still being evaluated for approval by an accrediting organization are not displayed. Many accrediting agencies prohibit the advertisement of potential credits.

Accepted CE hours show in Green. Hover your pointer over CE hours to display a ToolTip with CE details or other information.

Instead of hovering and reading CE detail in ToolTips, you can optionally click Approved CE Details and view all approved CE details in a table.

Approved CE Details may show multiple rows of sessions. If the same session appears on multiple rows, it indicates more that one type of approved continuing education credits are available for this single session. If different session names and IDs appear at the same start time, this indicates that you will choose later which session to attend and will receive credits only for the sessions you attend.

Finding More Information

A More Event Details link may appear after About The Event description. If available, this links to a website or site that gives further details about the event.

Every event allows you to ask a question or submit a comment by Web page form. A Question or Comment by Email button may also appears if the event has a support email address associated with it. Clicking Question or Comment by Email opens a new mail message using your email program.
