2014 National Registry Summit - Pre-Conference Workshops

National Registry 101

The intended audience for this workshop is new sponsors, individuals who are new to their role in responsibility for Registry sponsorship and those interested in a deeper dive into the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs (Standards).

This workshop will provide an overview of the Registry and the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs (Standards).  It will provide details on the more significant processes of the Registry: the initial or additional delivery method applications; the renewal process; and the desk audit process.  The workshop will describe the instructional delivery methods addressed by the Standards and focus on the significant aspects of development, presentation, measurement and reporting of each method.  The workshop will also highlight the most common areas of non-compliance with the Registry and the Standards, so that appropriate procedures can be put in place to ensure compliance.

Learning Objectives - Tips for Developing Compliant Learning Objectives

This workshop will provide guidance on how to develop learning objectives that are compliant with the Standards.  A common deficiency noted in most application and/or desk audit reviews involves the course learning objectives.  Do the learning objectives clearly articulate the knowledge, skills and abilities that can be achieved by the participants in the learning activities? The workshop will also offer best practices specifically in the development of self-study program learning objectives to ensure those objectives can be assessed at the end of the course.
