|Agency Decision Summary||
At its meeting on Deccember 16, 2014,the Board considered the petition and discussed the advantages and disadvantages of live CE versus an on-line or self-study format. It also reviewed the comments received and decided to retain the current requirements. While members appreciated the petition's point of view, it was their conclusion that there is value in face-to-face contact with other administrators, with whom you can share knowledge and experiences. Since the profession is in the business of taking care of people, the current blend of interactive CE with on-line or self-study courses seems beneficial and appropriate.
