Participants who successfully complete both the online and face-to-face portions of the workshop will be awarded three continuing education units from Texas A&M, along with a professional certificate issued by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station.
After registering for the workshop, participants will be manually added to a special course specifically created for the workshop and should receive an email from Texas A&M – Continuing and Professional Education inviting them to create an account and participate in the online course (INMM Workshop: Policy & Technical Fundamentals of International Nuclear Safeguards).  Because the participants are added manually, they will not have access to the course immediately upon registering for the workshop.
