College Credit and Continuing Ed Hours

This year attendees of #CTSS2024ATN will be eligible to receive 1.0 college credit (17 credit hours) for the in-person (Dallas) portion of the conference and 1.0 college credit (15 credit hours) for the virtual portion of the conference through Northwest Nazarene University’s Center for Professional Development. These graduate-level, non-degree-seeking, semester credits can also serve as continuing education credits for those needing to use them for professional licensure. This includes LCSWs, LMHCs, LPCs, RNs, and any profession that accepts college credits as continuing education.

To receive college credit/continuing ed hours for the conference, attendees are required to:

  • Register for the portion(s) of the conference they’re attending.
  • Attend two days either in-person or virtually (or all 4 days if attending both).
  • Register with NNU for credit by March 1, 2024 (see links below) Tuition is $60 for each portion.
  • Attendance will be verified prior to credit being awarded.

To register for credit for the Virtual portion: https://pdlearn.nnu.edu/modules/shop/index.html?action=section&OfferingID=3199383

If you have more questions about the college credits/continuing ed hours, contact: Jessica Urfer at [email protected], or call 208-467-8482.


Certificates of Attendance will be available for educators or others who need proof of attendance to give to their schools or other employers.  Certificates will be available in PDF form on the Conference Platform. Educators should download them shortly after you complete them, as ATN will not be printing/providing them.

ATN invites schools and other institutions to reach out to us regarding purchase orders (POs).

Due to our budget needs, pre-paid purchase orders are mandatory this year.  The av and hotel costs do not wait until after the event. POs are not cash, nor are they considered payment.

If your institution cannot prepay on a purchase order (have full payment made, with cash/check/card) prior to the Conference, please contact us and let us know that. We can then determine whether we can accept your purchase order.

If any portion of the Conference fills to capacity, preference will be given to fully paid Purchase Orders over post-event payments.

UPDATE YOUR VENDOR RECORDS- ATN has a new address for remittances. School systems that have been involved with us since the beginning might still have our old information in their records. We cannot be responsible for payments sent to any address other than the one below. We will only receive payments sent to this address.

Payment address:

Attachment & Trauma Network, Inc.
ATTN: S. Garde
PO Box 220
Westminster, MA 01473

We will provide an INVOICE for you if needed.  Contact [email protected] with the following information:

  • Name of Person attending
  • Email of Person attending
  • Name and billing address of institution issuing the PO
  • Contact person name and email address

The ATN Board of Directors looks for guidance from local, state, and federal authorities on all pandemic or other community health related protocols. If needed, ATN will issue/update a policy.  At this time, there are no specific vaccination or masking requirements for TSS2024.  2022 and 2023’s In-Person conference showed how cooperation, flexibility, and respect can lead to a safe atmosphere. ATN cannot guarantee any set policy at this time so please plan accordingly and be prepared for possible procedure announcements. 

We encourage all attendees to practice social distancing and good health hygiene during the event, as well as to not attend if they are feeling ill or have tested positive.  Common sense and courtesy go a long way.

We also encourage all registered attendees to watch for additional information about the event and community health protocols as the conference gets closer.
