2018 Continuing Education Reporting Information

Conference Transcript / Certificate

It was CRITICAL that you had your badge scanned by a volunteer course monitor when you exited every classroom at the end of every course. This was the only proof of your course attendance.

The afternoon of Monday, August 20, 2018, an email went out to everyone who took continuing education with the subject line "METROCON18 Certificates" letting you know that your Conference Transcript (a.k.a. Certificate) is available to download in your METROCON18 account. To procure it, follow these steps:

  • First LOGIN HERE.
  • Click on "ATTENDEE DASHBOARD" up at the top.
  • In the green menu on the left-hand side, click on "DOWNLOAD CERTIFICATE".
  • Note that you may need to scroll up a little to find the gray "Download Certificate" button. Once you see it, click on it to initiate the downloading process.

If you have login difficulties or find a discrepancy on your transcript, fill out the form to the right, and Show Manager Laura McDonald Stewart, FASID, IIDA, RID, LEED AP will get back to you.


Explanation of Credits on Transcripts / Certificates

0.1 credit = 1 hour

IDCEC tracks credits as “fractions,” and since the majority of our attendees report to IDCEC, we track credits using their system. The other entities - i.e., TBAE, AIA, EDAC, and GBCI - understand that a 0.1 credit translates to 1 hour of continuing education. Since we began the conference in 2003, we have never had anyone have a problem reporting their hours based on this system.


2018 Continuing Education Course List

If you need to refresh your memory on course codings - i.e., HSW, HSW-BF (barrier-free), HSW-SD (sustainable design), or HSW-BC (building codes) - for each of your courses, please visit the Continuing Education page.
