How long does it take to receive the ACC designation?

How does FAC keep track of the courses that I have taken?

All ACC sessions will have sign-in sheets passed around the room throughout the day. In order to receive credit for a course, you must attend the entire program from start to finish. In order to graduate with an ACC designation, you must fully attend all three of the sessions.
