Policy on Posting Sponsor Training Programs

I. Introduction

a. The College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals (the College) provides an opportunity to educational/ training institutes, organizations, sponsors and/or groups offering VR (Vocational Rehabilitation) and VE (Vocational Evaluation) training programs, events, workshops, seminars and/or courses to obtain pre-approval from the College, and post the approved on the College’s website. This is offered as a service to organizations as a promotional benefit in attracting CVRP registrants to their events, to our registrants and in pursuit of the College’s mandate to safeguard the public by making registrants aware of these opportunities for continuing education.

b. The College will accept posts for training programs, workshops, seminars and/or courses that fall within any of the 9 domain focus areas and meets the standards of practice upheld by the College. The approved Sponsor is responsible for processing applications for attendance and will provide dated completion certificates quoting the CVRP approval number on each certificate.

c. Beyond the College process to approve the training programs, the College does not assume responsibility for screening the educational/ training institutes or organizations themselves, nor does it endorse products or services of these organizations. It is the registrants’ responsibility to adequately research the training providers and verify their terms and conditions that may apply to successfully obtaining continuing education units. It is not the role of the College to monitor operational practices of these service providing organizations.

II. Procedure
a. To request pre-approval of a program, course and/or event (including employment in-service, public or private institution courses/programs of study), seminar, conference, symposium, college or university program/course, a sponsoring organization must complete the Request for Approving and Posting Training or Seminar or Conference Form (click here) and submit all required documentation for consideration. The supporting documentation can be uploaded at the end of the on-line form in pdf, word or excel format. It is the sponsor organization’s responsibility to ensure that all necessary information is provided to support the pre-approval review. Incomplete submissions cannot be considered until all necessary supporting documentation has been provided.

b. The College reserves the right to set the fee for this service and from time to time, adjust those fees at the direction of the Board of Directors. The fee for the training/education posting is due prior to the notice appearing on the College website.

c. The approved Sponsor education will be posted on the College Seminar and Conference webpage and added to the Current List of Approved CEU Programs.

d. The college will endeavour to approve all complete requests within 10 business days or shortly thereafter. All approved sponsor training will note the post date College Seminar and Conference webpage and will remain on the College website until the application deadline, or for 30 days.

e. The College reserves the right to remove any notice of training at any time. The College is the sole determiner as to what will appear on this site.
