How To Obtain your CEs

Step 1: Register for the OR Manager Conference.

Step 2: Attend the best perioperative event in the industry and go to as many sessions as possible. You’ll get scanned at every session you attend.

Step 3:  Fill out the CE question at the end of every session so we can keep track of how many CEs you have earned.

Step 4: Make sure you fill out any additional surveys after the conference you forgot about – you wouldn’t want to leave behind any credits.

Step 5: Log into your OR Manager account and print out your certificate with how many CE credits you earned. Don’t have an account? Sign up here.
