Collecting CEUs at BABAT 2018
For attendees collecting CEUs while at the BABAT conference, please setup your CEUHelper account before arriving.
Before the conference:
Please visit (a web/mobile application for obtaining and tracking CEUs) to sign up for an account and download the app. This is particularly helpful if you plan to collect CEUs for multiple types of certifications (e.g., BACB and PSYCH).
Please Note: Internet connection will not be provided by the conference; however, CEUHelper will work offline for the duration of the conference. Just join the conference at home before you arrive.
During the conference:

Check your conference receipt after registering to make sure you paid for CEUs. If you have paid, you are ready to start collecting CEUs. Just use your device to scan the codes in each room on your way in and out of each event.

After the conference:
Make sure you choose to “Leave the Conference” after you are done attending events. This will make sure all your CEUs are synced. You should receive a CEU certificate via email (remember to check junk email folders).
