IMPORTANT UPDATE   Webinar CE Expiration Date Changes
Initially, NAACCR webinars expired 2yrs s/p the LIVE air date for each webinar making things a bit complicated. To simplify things, NCRA has agreed to allow ALL NAACCR webinars in a series to have the SAME expiration date which is NOW 2yrs s/p the date of the LAST LIVE webinar to air in the series. As a result, FLccSC has been updated with NEW expiration dates to reflect this change.
