Face-to-Face Continuing Education Opportunities

Title text is Continuing Education.NOTE: Only content related to very young (birth – eight) children and/or their families will be approved. For example, this means that attending a conference on traumatic brain injury in adolescence would not be approved for BCW CEUs. Also, if the Continuing Education  Committee does not believe the information included in the workshop or event could be supported by findings or recommended ‘best practices’ in peer-reviewed journals (i.e., evidence or research based information), then it will not approve BCW CEUs in such instances.

Please Note:  Project SCEIs does not accept training on CPR because it is a basic expectation for working within the BCW system.  Credit will not be awarded for a course if credit has been previously awarded to the learner for completing the same course.

ONE-TIME CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT FOR PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION MEMBERSHIP

Project SCEIs will give a one-time addition of 5 continuing education (CE) hours for proof of membership in one of two Early Childhood-related professional organizations: National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC; http://www.naeyc.org/) or Council for Exceptional Children (CEC; http://www.cec.sped.org).  Credit will not be given for joining both.

As a field, it is important to connect with one another through professional organizations that focus on best practices for providing supports in a manner that meets the needs of young children and their families. Providing the one-time 5 CEU hours acknowledges the personal and professional benefits of joining a professional organization. Proof of current membership in NAEYC equals 5 CEUs in Area 1 or proof of current membership in CEC equals 5 CEUs in Area 2.  Please send proof of membership to Project SCEIs at listen@valdosta.edu.
