* Important Information about these valuable workshops:
  • Participants need to commit to attending both days for the full exam prep workshop.  All participants must pay before being allowed admission to the workshop. On-site registration is dependent on available room capacity (we encourage pre-registration as space is limited).
  • Check-in for the workshop is 8:30 - 9:00 am on Friday. 
  • Participants will get breaks throughout the day.  Lunch is on your own.  Within  5 minutes are McAlister's Deli, Noodles & Company, Q-Doba, Perkins, Aspen Creek Grill, Famous Dave's, several fast food, and plenty of shopping at Hamilton Town Center.
  • We encourage you to bring personal water/coffee/snacks with you to the workshop to have throughout the day.  
  • We would also encourage you to bring your DSM if you have one (it is not required, but you may want to reference it throughout or at the end of the day).
  • Parking is free
  • Can I take this if I am needing to take the CPCE Exam? 
    According to their website:
    'There is no official study guide for the CPCE.  Since the CPCE and the NCE for licensure and certificates are based on the same eight knowledge areas, any study materials developed for the NCE should be useful.'
