CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT

In order to ensure quality and consistency with program recommendations, each advocate must complete 3 units of continuing education every 12 months.  The web directory is updated annually, based on an analysis of CE credit recorded between September of the previous year and the end of August of the current year.  Options to meet this requirement include:

  1. Search Advocate Workshops, Community of Practice meetings, and Update Workshop offerings
    • Complete the SA workshop series = 3 credits
    • Complete a half-day SA Update workshop = 3 credits
    • Attend one Community of Practice meeting = 1 credit
    • Serve as a panelist for one SA Workshop series = 1 credit
  2. Social Justice Education Initiative Workshop offerings
    • Complete Tier One of the Social Justice Education Initiative (SJEI) series, Sessions 1 & 2 = 3 credits if you send an email including the title and your completion date to anne.gillies@oregonstate.edu
    • Complete any other SJEI workshop = 1 credit  if you send an email including workshop title and date to anne.gillies@oregonstate.edu
  3. Other options
    • Attend a university or community event about a relevant topic = 1 credit if you email a summary of key points along with your thoughts about relevance to the SA role to anne.gillies@oregonstate.edu (feel free to check in advance if you aren't certain about relevance)
    • Other options will be announced to the listserv as they occur

CE credits for Search Advocate offerings are recorded from the event rosters, so be sure to sign in if you attend!  We recommend you obtain some of your CE credit from the SA program each year in order to keep current with the program's recommended practices.  All other CE credits will be recorded when you send email to anne.gillies@oregonstate.edu as described above.
