Pre-Conference Institutes are an optional day of NCORE programming. These institutes represent the most in-depth material on a subject at NCORE, offering 7 to 10 clock-hours of content. When you register, you should choose ONE session to attend the entire day on Tuesday, May 26th. Some institutes continue the morning of Wednesday, May 27th, and are noted as such on the individual session pages linked below.
An added benefit: you will earn one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) by attending a Pre-Conference Institute. It will be the discretion of your professional organization or association whether they accept the CEU for credit.
