HOW MANY EDUCATIONAL CREDITS CAN I EARN AT WEFTEC CONNECT 2020?

WEFTEC Connect 2020 will have both live sessions and on-demand sessions that you can access over the next year.

The live sessions offer you the ability to earn up to 1.625 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or 16.25 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). These sessions will be available for one year and credits may be available by viewing a session(s) and taking the related online quizzes. The total possible credits are dependent on several factors but more than 100 hours of content is anticipated. This total will be updated as we get closer to the event and have more accurate information available.

CE credit totals also will be based on the number of sessions attended, proof of participation time, and verification of learning. In most cases, the credits issued by WEF can be converted to meet state specific requirements that vary from the system used by WEF. For example, both CEU and PDH credits are available for specific session types to Professional Engineers by most state licensing boards, including the NYSED.

 

BE AWARE OF YOUR STATE LICENSE REQUIREMENTS

WEF calculates educational credits following a standardized method that is widely accepted by many certifications and licensing agencies. It is important to note that most states differ in the types and/or numbers of credits they will approve for educational events, and these rules may have changed for 2020. Because of this, participants are responsible for exploring their state requirements and for ensuring that WEFTEC credits are accepted. WEF applies for pre-approval nationally.

Recently there has been an increased focus on continuing education programs for licensed professionals. Educational events, such as WEFTEC, further your education, provide opportunities to get involved and gain knowledge of technical advances in your field, and in many cases are required in order for you to renew licenses or certifications.

In keeping with IACET guidelines, WEF maintains a database of all continuing education files for a minimum of 7 years. For more information regarding WEF’s Continuing Education Program, please visit www.wef.org. To request CE documentation, please submit an email request to [email protected].

WEF calculates educational credits following a standardized method that is widely accepted by many certification and licensing agencies; however, many states differ in the types and/or numbers of credits they will approve for educational events. Because of this, participants are responsible for exploring their state requirements and for ensuring that WEFTEC credits are accepted. Please remember that WEF provides documentation to attendees; however, most states require the individual licensee to report continuing education credits.

Certificates and transcripts are available to participants electronically when WEFTEC begins!  Please keep in mind that, although WEF does provide these files, most states will require the individual licensee to report continuing education credits.

WEF applies for approval in every state, and will be happy to work with individuals and Member Associations on additional state or agency approvals upon request. In addition, WEF has been approved as a Training Provider through the Florida Board of Professional Engineers, the New York State Department of Education and the Ohio EPA.

State Credit Calculations:

Some state licensing boards will accept CEUs for session under 3 hours in length. Some use different acronyms for training credits. In most instances, the credits issued by WEF can be converted to meet state specific requirements that vary from the system used by WEF. This is usually managed at the state level using the following conversion method:

1.0 CEU = 10 Hours of session time
1.0 PDH = 1 Hour of session time
1.0 Contact Hour = 1 Hour of session time
For Example: 1.2 CEU Credits = 12.0 PDH Credits or 17.0 PDH Credits could equate to 1.7 CEU Credits Depending on individual state regulations
