Session Attendance Recording
Attendance to education sessions will be recorded through a name badge scanning system at the entrance to each education session. All Greenbuild attendees must scan at the entrance to each session to record their attendance. Scanning begins 30 minutes before each session start time and ends 10 minutes after the start of each session, after which credit cannot be granted.

You cannot earn credit for a course if you enter the course later than ten minutes after the start of the session, or do not scan into a course. Additionally, you will not be able to scan into two sessions at once; only the second session will be recorded.

Attendees will be able to download their course attendance records on-site at Greenbuild through Greenbuild Event Explorer.
