You may guarantee seating by registering for Registration PLUS (subject to availablity, additional fee applies). All designation courses and Registration PLUS require pre-registration.

IMPORTANT!! Pennsylvania licensees initially licensed on or after December 1, 2011 are required to take specific, mandatory courses which are NOT available at Triple Play 2012.

CE registrants must attend the entire session in order to earn credit for the session. To assure proper credit for any Real Estate or Appraisal CE courses you are taking, you MUST scan your convention badge whenever you ENTER and EXIT the room. If your badge will not scan, please fill out the sign in sheet available at door and your sign in/out time will be recorded for you.
