Registration List

CEU requests must be submitted and approved before registration can begin in REPORTER. Late registrations cannot be processed because CEUs cannot retroactively be awarded after the course has been filed with the Registrar. Individual participants cannot select whether or not they will receive CEUs; satisfactory completion of the stated criteria as developed and evaluated by the instructor/sponsor is the sole factor. All participants satisfactorily meeting the program criteria should be on the roster.

Submit in REPORTER a typed alphabetic roster using the preferred roster format. List every participant’s name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth. This list must be signed by the qualified instructor certifying attendees met the minimum requirements for satisfactorily completing the program. All program information must be submitted for processing within 10 days after program completion with all of the required registrant information.
