"Corrections from A to Z".

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) Offered at the 2004 Winter Conference

ACA will be offering continuing education units (CEUs) from the University of Maryland at the 2004 Winter Conference. Many correctional agencies consider CEUs when evaluating staff for advancement. Register for the program and attend 5 workshops. After the Conference, attendees receive a certificate indicating that they've earned 3.2 CEUs from the University of Maryland.

Step 1: Check in at the ACA on-site registration area. The CEU registration fee is $35 in addition to your Conference registration fee. The CEU program card you receive must be completed and appropriately signed for each Session that you attend.

Step 2: CEUs can be obtained by attending five ACA workshops. Have the Session evaluator sign your program card at the close of each Session.

Step 3: The completed CEU program card should be returned to ACA on-site at the Conference, or by mail to the ACA office no later than January 30, 2004.

Continuing Medical Education/Florida-Continuing Education (CME/FL-CE) Program

Correctional health care personnel participating in ACA's CME/FL-CE Program can earn Category 1 CME credits for attending selected workshops. In cooperation with the Florida Board of Nursing, correctional nurses can earn 1 1/2 FL-CE credits for each 1 1/2 hour workshop they attend. Twenty two workshops have been preliminarily approved by the Florida Department of Corrections/Office of Health Services, Continuing Medical Education Program and the Florida Board of Nursing for CME and/or FL-CE credits. Participants will be able to receive up to a maximum of 33.0 CME or 33.0 FL-CE credits for attending the Conference.
