 Best Practices for CDTs and RGs: Ensure you receive continuing education (CE) credit for attending a conference

Best Practices for CDTs and RGs: Ensure you receive continuing education (CE) credit for attending a conference

CDTs and RGs can earn CE credit by attending courses at large industry conferences, such as the upcoming LMT Lab Day Chicago meetings. However, NBC does not pre-approve all courses, and not all course providers will report your CE credit to NBC. Follow these tips to make sure you get the CE credit you deserve:

Before the conference, include your CDT/RG number in your registration information. Your number should be in the format XXXXXX-00, where XXXXXX are six unique digits. Do not omit the -00 or any leading zeros.

At the conference, at the end of each course you attend, ask the course provider or speaker for a certificate of attendance. If they do not have one, exchange cards with them and request one by email later. Keep any documentation you receive as proof of your attendance.

The onsite program will indicate which courses have been pre-approved by NBC. These course providers should digitally report your CE credit to NBC within two weeks. If the onsite program does not indicate a course has been pre-approved by NBC, you need to report the CE credit you earned yourself.

After the conference, log in to MyNBC at www.nbccert.org. Check to see if your CE credit has been reported. If needed, report the CE credit you earned to NBC by submitting your certificate of attendance or other documentation.

If your credit does not get reported, or if you have trouble getting documentation from the course provider, contact NBC staff at certification@nbccert.org or 800-684-5310.  We can help you document your credit in a different way, and make sure the credit you earned is added to your CDT/RG records.

Take charge of keeping track of your CE documentation and make sure it's reported to NBC. By following these steps, you can ensure that you are set for your next CDT/RG renewal.

Call for 2025 NBC Board of Trustees Candidates

The National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology (NBC) is seeking individuals interested in serving on the 2025 NBC Board of Trustees.

New trustees will be elected, or appointed, in the fall of 2024 and will take office on Jan. 1, 2025.

The boards guide the organization through proven leadership, a shared vision and support for the missions of the association. If you enjoy collaborating with other professionals and have a desire to give back to your profession, we want you!

Qualities of an Effective NBC Board of Trustee Member
     - Serving as an association leader is both an honour and a reward. It requires a proven commitment to the organization and its missions and goals.
     - Participating fully in association activities requires extra time and expense for attending meetings.
     - Well-developed interpersonal skills and ability to communicate are essential to effective teamwork.
     - An effective board member brings their expertise and experience to provide value, but such experience and expertise should not drive the policy-making process.
     - Intuitive and interpretive skills enable leaders to understand the people around them, internalize the data they receive, recognize the relationships that exist between systems within their world and integrate all these elements into a coherent whole.
     - Focusing on policy-making, not the day-to-day operations of the organization is what makes an effective board.
