Where can I complete session/conference evaluations? Where can I find a certificate of attendance?
ATD TK 2023 is CE-eligible with the ATD Certification Institute, HRCI, and SHRM. Attendees must complete an evaluation for each conference session attended in person, watched virtually, or viewed on-demand to receive credit for the session on a ATD TK CE transcript. Starting February 13, 2023, attendees can download their transcript and certificate of attendance for use in self-report earned continuing education credits (CEs) for certification or re-certification with each credentialing body using the same link as the survey evaluations.
Click here to access the session evaluation website. Session evaluations also can be accessed through the TK 2023 mobile app. Attendees will receive a separate email from firstname.lastname@example.org to access session evaluations online. The session evaluations will close on April 14, 2023. After that date, attendees will only be able to print a copy of a certificate of attendance and not add additional sessions to a transcript.
