You will have a deadline to submit the completed online evaluation and assessment. To receive credit towards the MCR designation, you must complete the assessment and receive a passing score of 80% or better. All assessments are open book and we expect your submitted assessment to be your original work. Collaboration with others or the sharing of answers is not permitted and will result in a failed exam. Most of the assessments are comprised of multiple choice, short answer and / or essay questions. (If you are considering becoming an MCR Candidate, please take the assessment and contact Kitty Edwards to explore MCR Candidacy.)

MCR Designees & SLCR Candidates - Upon completion of the online evaluation, you will have the option to print or save a Certificate of Completion for this seminar. There is no requirement to complete the online assessment for MCR recertification credits or SLCR certificate requirements.

List Policy 

CoreNet Global List: Use it for professional networking…not selling or mass marketing.
Members have expressed concern over the growing frequency of email and direct mail solicitation from other members and industry professionals. Because the CoreNet Global membership list is considered a members only benefit to enabling access to members and in the operation of the association, its use for mass marketing or other solicitations is not allowed.


CoreNet Global makes every effort to create the right conditions for the highest level of networking to support the learning that occurs in our programs. Break periods, luncheons and receptions are designed to provide networking opportunities among students and faculty.


The dress for all CoreNet Global seminars is business casual. We suggest that you wear layered clothing because room temperatures in conference facilities are difficult to control and may seem either too cool or too warm at times.
