To Register
Click on the "Upcoming Programs & Register" Tab to view programs month by month.  Participants may use the online system to register using a credit card OR call in registration/payment OR mail in registration/payment to Core Learning at PO Box 27, Birmingham, MI  48012-0027.  

Continuing Education Earned
Participants must attend the entire course AND submit a completed evaluation AND quiz in order to receive a Certificate of Course Attendance that will be distributed via e-mail after the completion of all program steps and requirements.  The Certificate of Course Attendance will verify the attainment of continuing education hours for that program. Every continuing education program will be monitored and participants not fulfilling these requirements will not receive a certificate. Participants should also expect the implementation of roll-call attendance being taken during the training to verify attendance.  Being absent for more than 10 minutes per hour/60 minutes of scheduled programming, may result in adjusted CE hours earned or forfeiture of credit for the entire course. 

Participants have up to one week following the end of a workshop to complete and submit the evaluation and quiz.  Partial evaluations and/or quizzes may not be accepted and may require re-completion and re-submission.  Participants must receive a quiz score of 70% in order to pass the quiz and receive an attendance certificate.  Following the submission of a completed evaluation and passing quiz, participants will be e-mailed a certificate of attendance within one week.

Program confirmations and correspondence, links, handouts, an evaluation, quiz and ultimately an attendance certificate will all be sent via e-mail.  E-mails are sometimes blocked.  If participants do not receive necessary information prior to the training or an evaluation and quiz within 48 hours following a program and/or an attendance certificate within one week of completing and submitting the evaluation and quiz, please notify Stephanie at 248-933-2673 or sappel@corelearninginc.com.  

As a company, Core Learning, Inc. does not require participants to have their cameras on for the entire training in order to receive continuing education credit.  However, the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals (MCBAP) will not accept the CE hours as “face-to-face” if participants' cameras are not on for the entire training. 

Participants will need 2-way communication in one way or another.  This means that attendees (whether cameras are in use or not) will need to be able to hear the speaker and host, unmute and speak back OR use the chat function to respond if called upon.  Participants will also need to have their device name recognizable OR allow the host to change their name to be recognizable.


"Face-to-Face" CE Policy

The Zoom platform used by Core Learning, Inc. is “live synchronous”.  For Social Work, this counts as in-person/face-to-face continuing education indefinitely.  For those who have the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professional (MCBAP) credentials, this platform will count as in-person/face-to-face through December 31, 2021.

LARA does not require participants to have their camera feeds on during a training in order to receive CE credit.  We appreciate and encourage participants to have camera feeds on as it does increase engagement in the program, however, Social Work CE seeking participants will not be penalized for having their camera feed off or having no camera feed.

As a company, Core Learning, Inc. does not require participants to have their cameras on for the entire training in order to receive continuing education credit.  However, in order for the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals (MCBAP) to accept the CE hours as “face-to-face”, MCBAP does require participant cameras to be on for the entire training.  For MCBAP credentials, for the training to be considered in person, the camera has to be on. If the camera is not on, it would then be counted by MCBAP as an online training.

Participants will need 2-way communication in one way or another.  This means that attendees (whether cameras are in use or not) will need to be able to hear the speaker and host, unmute and speak back OR use the chat function to respond if called upon.  Participants will also need to have their device name recognizable OR allow the host to change their name to be recognizable.
