Continuing Education Credit

Continuing Education Credits (CECs) are more advanced learning experiences than what you learned in nutrition school. They are intended to further your education and it is common for industry associations like the NANP to require professionals to provide evidence that they are staying current on trends and changes in the field.

Our objective with NANP’s CEC requirements is strictly to maintain a high level of standardization within our industry. As a professional business league, we take our role of self-governance very seriously. We always seek to demonstrate our commitment to excellence and the objective adjudication of our standards while treating our members with parity.

Every conference attendee will receive a CEC Certificate of Completion based on the sessions they attended. If you have questions as to whether HEALCon CECs will be approved by another organization, please first check with that organization, as they may have specific requirements. Typically, outside organizations like to know the conference schedule and speaker lineup to make a determination.

To provide individualized CEC Certificates of Completion based on the exact number of sessions attended, and to determine which speakers and sessions are most popular, we will be using a HEALCon Attendee Survey to collect session attendance this year. 

A link will be provided before, during, and after the conference to ensure constant and streamlined access to this survey. Attendees can choose to log their session attendance and feedback throughout the conference or to complete the survey all at once after the event. 

  • You must access the survey from the same browser and device. Survey Monkey uses cookies stored in the browser to check and save your progress. So, if you start the survey on your phone, you cannot pick it back up from your laptop.
  • Responses are saved when you click the ‘Next’ or ‘Done’ button at the end of each page, and the next page loads successfully.
    • For example, if you fill out the first page but do not click NEXT, your answers will not be saved. If you DO click save, the next time you access the app, it will pick up right where you left off.

Conference attendees will receive their CEC certificates via email no later than June 1, 2024. As a courtesy to our professional members, NANP will track earned CECs to the members’ accounts and provide updated CEC reports.

CEC certificates will be sent via email from Dani Gibbs, NANP’s Certifications & Member Relations Supervisor. They will be emailed to the email address with which the conference registration was purchased. Attendees are encouraged to check Junk or SPAM folders for this email. For questions, please get in touch with Dani at

HEALCon will be worth a total of twenty-one (21) CECs when all available sessions are attended. Attendees will have the chance to earn twelve (12) CECs while at the conference, and the remaining nine (9) CECs can be earned by successfully completing and submitting the session’s free corresponding quiz.
