Level I or Level II Relias LMS certification available on-site!

About Certification

Impact Nation kicks off with a day of in-depth training. Sessions are broken up into fundamental, intermediate, and advanced tracks to cover Relias LMS functionality at every experience level.

All attendees will have the option to become Level I or Level II Relias LMS certified in their respective experience levels. In order to become Relias LMS certified, you will have to pass an exam. This exam is the same test our very own Support Consultants have to pass.

What comes with Relias LMS certification?

  • Certificate of completion
  • Badge in Relias Connect
  • Resume addition
  • Sneak peeks at future Relias LMS updates
  • On-going testing
  • Discounts on conferences

Atendees must pass an assessment to receive certification. All attendees are welcome to participate in Relias LMS certification sessions.

Yes, parking details will be confirmed shortly.

How do I make hotel reservations under the discounted block for Impact Nation?

Please visit this page to make hotel reservations

What if I register now to secure the great early bird rate, but then I can’t attend the conference?

No problem, if you wish we will refund 100% of your money as long as you cancel before August 1st, 2018. No risk, cancel for any reason. If you have to cancel at the last minute, we will refund your payment at 50% between August 1st and September 1st.

You are also welcome to substitute another individual in your place. You can do either of those things by simply sending an email to cchassagneux@relias.com or go to the registration page, enter your registration confirmation number and choose “Unregister” or “Substitute Registration”.

Are meals included in my pass? What about the networking party?

They sure are. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (breakfast only) at the conference. Of course, at the party dinner and entertainment is also provided. If you purchase a guest pass, your spouse, a family member or a friend can join you at the party as well, as long as they are over 21.

I am trying to book my flight and hotel, and I need to know when would be best to arrive and return home. When should I travel?

In a nutshell:

  • Early registration opens Monday, Oct. 1st from 4-6:30pm.
  • Pre-Conference Workshops start 9am Tuesday, October 2nd
  • Conference ends by 11:30am on Thursday, October 4th.

If you are a Relias customer or are considering becoming one, and you would like to attend our pre-day RLMS Training/Certification Workshops, the Turnover Workshop, or the Course Writing Workshop be sure to arrive in time to start the first session at 9am on Tuesday, October 2nd.

Can I meet 1 on 1 with a Relias support member?

Yes, we are going to host more Office Hours than ever. Office Hours are personal 1-on-1 sessions with a support team member. We will reach out to all registered attendees with an opportunity to sign up for an Office Hour to dive into your own training site and get answers to your specific questions.

How does your Buy One, Get One offer work? When does it end?

We made it simple, all passes purchased at any time until registration is closed are Buy One, Get One Half Off and the discount will be applied automatically. There is no limit to how many passes you can purchase with this offer. If you buy 3 passes, you can get 3 half off! Please be sure to register everyone on the same registration, once you begin with the first registrant, you will have the opportunity to “Add People”. This will secure your discount. Note – there is no discount on single passes.

We were able to lower the costs on passes this year with the support of sponsors, so the Early Bird rates and the BOGO half priced offer are the best deals you can get on Impact Nation passes so don’t wait to register! We do expect Impact Nation 2018 to sell out and the passes incrementally increase in price as we near the conference dates.

I am attending the pre-day training and would like to get my Level I or II Relias LMS certification. How do I do that?

The process is fairly simple – about 10 days after Impact Nation, our team will email you with instructions and access to the certification test. If you have any questions, you can email certification@relias.com.
