    Excited about the Summit!  Looking forward to catching a bit live but will have to do most recorded later.   Just realized I am not sure what I am doing to record the CEU's?  Am I listening for code words?  Taking quizzes?  Will this be covered in the introduction this morning?  

    Thanks for your help!

    Hoping you are seeing that there is an evaluation you complete and then there is a quick test you take and you then get a certificate for each session.  You can also add it to you elevate account at DONA so you are all set at recertification time.  I think they have a little video for us available. Not sure where that it- but it explains how to add the certificates to our DONA Elevate Platform.  I bet it will land in a library at some point and they will also post it here.

    Hello Tamara,

    I hope you have been enjoying the conference so far! :-)

    When you click on the session (either on the summit page or as an on-demand session in your Dashboard on DONA Elevate), you will see several tabs, e.g. for info, speaker(s), handouts, and one of the tabs is labeled Contents. Click on that.

    Then you will immediatels see what you need to do, and the order:

    1. Watch (entire!) session
    2. complete session evaluation (valuable feedback for DONA, but also for the speaker(s)!)
    3. complete  Post Test Questions, and pass (you need at least 2 out of three correct answers)
    and 4. will then be your certificate of completion. It will be recorded on DONA Elevate automatically.

    I would recommend to also download it to your own files, so that you have a copy yourself, as well.

    DONA Elevate will have a record of all the sessions you completed, and the contact hours you earned. When the time comes for your recertification, you will need to gather all the ones from within your certification period (or at least enough to meet the required contact hours), and submit them with your application.

    I hope this helps.

    And enjoy the next couple of months as you continue watching all the other sessions that you were not able to attend right now, or maybe even watch one or the other again (another advantage of the virtual conference!).

    In the doula spirit,

    Uta Mattox, AdvCD(DONA)
