Design Master Software is an approved provider of continuing education credits in New York and Florida. You will earn 9 hours of continuing education credits for these two states if you attend the Design Master User Conference 2011. In New York, these credits count toward the 18 hours of courses that require immediate interaction with an instructor or presenter.
