From:Lee & Peggy Wenk

NSH Teleconferences are $90 each, and you can have as many people listen as
you want. Each received 1 hour continuing education from NSH. You receive
Kodachromes, handout (to be copied by you), and sign in sheet.

For an extra $10, you can receive a tape of the teleconference, and your
employees can listen to it anytime they have extra time, or even at home.
The tape comes with a 4 multiple choice test, which they complete as
verification of "participation", to earn the 1 hour CE from NSH. The
tape/test is good for up to 2 years after the teleconference, so you can use
it for new people who come in during that 2 year period, or for people who
procrastinate on getting their CEU.

Also, if you have someone who has a hearing impairment, NSH can provide a
transcript of the teleconference, also for an extra $10. This arrives about
1 month after the teleconference, again with the 4 multiple choice test. And
is worth 1 contact hour from NSH, and is good for up to 2 years..
