The 2010 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition opened today  with more than 3,000 ITS professionals in attendance.

 

During the opening general session, BICSI president Brian Hansen  made an announcement from the Board of Directors concerning conference continuing education credits (CECs).

 

Under the new plan, the specialists will receive a proportionate rate of CECs for their conference attendance — just as the Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDDs) and Registered Information Technology Professionals (RITPs) currently gain conference CECs.

 

“We understand our members have concerns, especially about gaining CECs for their specialty credentials,” said Hansen.

 

“When we separated the specialties and made them standalone credentials from the RCDD, we began requiring design skills in each of the design specialty credentials. Because of this, they now qualify for design-related CECs. Moving forward, we will assign a proportionate number of CECs for specialties based upon a balance of design and credential-specific knowledge.”
