Board of Corrections (STCs)
For Standards and Training for Corrections (STC) participants who need STC training credit for this event, please apply for Special Certification through your STC
training manager/coordinator.  
As this year's STC certification procedure for the FMHAC conference is a little different, please be aware that this is only a procedural change and should have no effect on the certification of workshops at the conference.  In fact, it will allow more flexibility for attendees.

The process for a Special Certification is as follows:

  • Inform your training manager that you will be attending this conference and you will be asking for a Special Certification.
  • Upon returning from the conference, inform your training manager how many hours you attended and ask them to submit a Special Certification for those hours.
