PCC will evaluate the information you submit on the Training Record Form and verify your attendance against the workshop Sign-In Sheets submitted from the Training Symposium.
Step 5: PCC will award you CEUs
PCC will award you CEUs based on verified attendance at each workshop and will send you a bill for the payment of CEUs earned (see program description for cost information). For example, if you attended 13 hours of training (1.3 CEUs) at the Training Symposium and you are pursuing the Certified Civil Rights Specialist (CCRS) certification, you will be billed $78.00 ($60.00 per CEU X 1.3 CEUs). If you only attended 10 hours of training you would be billed $60.00 for 1 CEU.
If you attended 13 hours (1.3 CEUs) of training at the Training Symposium and you are pursuing the Certified Civil Rights Manager (CCRM) certification, you will be billed $91.00 ($70.00 per CEU X 1.3 CEUs). If you only attended 10 hours of training you would be billed $70.00 for 1 CEU.
Step 6. Submit payment to PCC
Submit payment to PCC within a few weeks of receiving the bill. Failure to make payment will result in you not receiving CEU credits for your training. You need to work with your institution to decide if payment will be made by you personally or through a tuition reimbursement program or other method determined by your institution.
Step 7. PCC will post CEUs to your Transcript
After you submit payment to PCC, it will post earned hours to your CEU transcript.
