I need to take the Foundations classes for certification, but I see another breakout session I would like to attend – what do I do?
You have a couple of options here! We will be recording each session, and you may purchase audio recordings of sessions while at the conference. If you choose to attend the Foundations breakout session, you can order the Continuing Education session with no additional steps. If you choose to attend the Continuing Education Session, you will need to purchase the Foundations class and listen prior to continuing with class training. You will be required to submit a short summary of that training to the instructor as confirmation you are ready to move forward. The recordings will be emailed to you in MP3 format, once uploaded and edited post-conference.
How do I get the remainder of my Foundations training for certification?
Thirty hours of foundational training are required as part of Phase 1: Learning for ACBC certification. The remaining hours will be covered by a weekly class held in the fall of 2020– which you may attend in person, or, we will also live-stream for those who are unable to attend.
What is ACBC Certification?
Canyon Hills is a Certified Biblical Training Center through ACBC, and many of our counselors are certified through this nationally recognized counseling agency. For more information on what certification is and the pathway to certification, check out ACBC’s Website.
How do I get recordings of sessions?
Each session will be audio recorded and available for purchase at the conference. You will receive an email with a link, once audio has been downloaded and edited.
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide childcare for this event, and as a courtesy to all our attenders, we kindly ask that you do not bring your children with you. Infants are welcome to attend with parents (we do offer a family room at the back of our worship center if it is needed).
Where and when do I check in?
You will be able to check in in our main church lobby at the registration table. This table will be open on Thursday, June 5, 5-7pm and again on Friday, beginning at 3pm.
You may park anywhere in our parking lot of the main church building, or in front of our other buildings (Canyon Hills 3 and 4). Please note any signs that reserve parking is for other businesses (and do not park there). You may also park at the Park ‘N Ride, just one block south on 17th Ave. It’s a short walk to the church!
Will you be able to accommodate food allergies?
We will do our best to offer a variety of foods, snacks, and beverages for those who have food allergies or sensitivities. If you have a severe allergy, or many allergies/sensitivities, we ask that you bring your own food or plan on eating offsite for lunch. While we hope to accommodate as much as we can, we know individual needs vary greatly and we will not be able to guarantee all needs are met.
