NIRS Tip 3

Continuing Education/Community Training


·         Continuing Education:

Seminar(s) or courses of instruction offered by a UCEDD that: (1) serve to maintain professional credentials; (2) encourage professionals to expand their knowledge base and stay up-to-date on new developments; and (3) offer certificates of completion or CEUs (or their equivalents).

·         Training:

Training provided by UCEDD faculty/staff to enhance knowledge of a variety of community members (individuals with developmental and other disabilities, their families, professionals, paraprofessionals, policy-makers, students or others in the community).

·         Activities will be categorized as Continuing Education or Community Training based on the response to the question "Are continuing education credits offered?" , which already exists in NIRS:

Yes = Continuing Education

No = Community Training
