Update on the allocation of webinar CEUs    – 8 October 2020

Our Certification Liaisons have had long “ discussions” with ISA this week about where our CEUs are!  ISA informed us there was a problem with one component of them and they are working to resolve this.  Hopefully they will be posted soon.  They assure us all participants will be back credited with their missing CEUs.   Please keep an eye on it though.  We would appreciate knowing when they show up!    rebecca [at] isaontario.com
