We are excited that you’ve chosen to attend the 2020 Virtual Symposium for Research Administrators on November 10th, 2020! Since this year’s symposium will be virtual, continuing education credits will be handled differently than in years past. Read on to learn more!
- First, we’ve done away with session codes! Yup, you read right, we will NOT be providing codes for each of this year’s sessions.
- So how is credit assigned? The Office of Education for Research Administration and Finance (OERAF) will monitor and record your attendance in the morning and afternoon sessions and will assign credit based upon the length of time that you were engaged.
- In order to earn credit for your attendance in the session(s), participants must be logged in via a computer or app on a mobile device. Dialing in via phone where visual images are unavailable will not qualify for continuing education credit. Logging in via a computer or mobile device and using a phone for the audio portion is allowed when it is coupled with the other device.
- Continuing education credit will be issued in increments of 0.5 hours up to 5 hours for the full day. If you can only attend for part of the event, OERAF will capture the portion of time that you were able to participate. Prior notification is not needed.
- Credit will be loaded into the RCC Training Tracker after the symposium. Please note that due to the high volume of attendance, credits may take up to two weeks to appear in the Training Tracker.
- An email alert will be sent to the community once credits are available in the RCC Training Tracker. If after two weeks your credits do not appear, please contact OERAF.
- Sessions will be recorded and can be reviewed after the event; however, continuing education credit will not be given to those who watch the recorded sessions.
As a reminder, the new Continuing Education Guidelines released on October 21, 2020 allows for up to 5 credits from the symposium to be counted toward maintaining your existing RAA, AGM, RAI, FCC and RCC certifications for the FY21 certification year.
