Approval of Employer or Sponsor Training Programs

Policy on Posting Sponsor Training Programs

The College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals (the College) provides an opportunity for groups to apply to have their education programs, webinars or web-based learning programs, seminars, conferences or employer in-service training to obtain pre-approval from the College for posting the approved programs on the College’s website.  This is offered as a dual service to the organizations who want to attract College certified registrants to their events and to assist the College registrants in finding and completing their mandatory biennial CEU submission for certification maintenance.  It will also assist those professionals in pursuit of achieving College certification.
