Advocates are required to complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education each year. This requirement can be met by attending workshops or trainings in the community. It can also be met through individual study, which could include: reading an article or book, watching a video or attending a presentation on a pertinent issue.
Starting in January 2022, to receive credit for your independent continuing education you must fill out the continuing education questionnaire. Once this is submitted your case supervisor will give you credit for your hours completed and track your continuing education for the year.
