Education

    KnowledgeLab 2017 content will focus on the ten CLMA Body of Knowledge domains, making it easy to pinpoint the sessions you need to attend and allowing you to identify your personal path toward competency as a laboratory leader at any stage of your career.

    KnowledgeLab 2017 Breakout Sessions are one full hour in length, with time for Q&A following each session. These hour long breakout sessions offer 1 CEU credit hour per session. Short Topic sessions are 30-minute educational presentations presented in “Ted Talk” style with a short 15-20 minute presentation on a topic followed by a few minutes of Q&A. These sessions are worth 0.5 credit hours.
