New England Grows

Continuing Education Credit

Since 2006, New England Grows has used electronic badge scanning as a means of tracking Continuing Education Credit and reducing paper consumption. Through our efforts, the majority of regional pesticide programs and other organizations now accept electronic data as proof of attendance. For help retreiving proof-of-attendance from past New England Grows shows we ask that you fill out a request form. Please note, for each year you are requesting Proof of Attendance you must submit a $25 administrative fee to New England Grows.

Online Certificate of Attendance System

  • Provide your continuing education credit and/or license information when you register.
  • Your badge will be scanned when you enter a session that is approved for credit. Plan to arrive before the session starts to ensure that your badge is scanned.
  • After the conference, attendance data is sent to the appropriate pesticide program, or accrediting organization.
  • Your customized Certificate of Attendance confirms your participation in the sessions for which your badge was scanned. It will be available online at no charge until May 30, 2014. After that date, a $25.00 administrative fee will be assessed.
