An ACPE Academy Webinar

Certification Reform and Professional Development Work Group Initatives
Presenter(s): Amy Greene and Mary Stewart Hall

Webinar Overview:

In May, 2014, two work groups were formed to develop a new proposal for the Certification Process and for Professional Development of Supervisors. After two years of intensive, thoughtful and innovative work, the proposal from the work groups was unanimously approved by the Board of Representatives at its May 2016 meeting. Following the May meeting, an implementation team will be working to determine how the proposal will become our practice, with an anticipated beginning of January, 2018. This webinar series will present the key ideas and components from each work group and will offer participants the opportunity to ask additional questions.

To read the proposal in its entirety, please click here to download a copy from the ACPExchange Resource Library which is located under MY ACPE and MY COMUNITIES. The name of the file is Cert Reform and PD Task Force Proposal.
