Continuing Education Tracking System Open

In the last UUMA Weekly, we shared with you the Continuing Education Standards that have been developed. If you missed that, you can find them here. We are asking you to try them out for the year by using the tracking system on the UUMA website.
To enter your Continuing Education Experiences and Hours:
-From the main UUMA page, in the box that says “My Profile,” click on manage profile.
-Scroll down to the section titled “Content and Features.” Select Professional Development.
This page is where you will see your transcript of continuing education.
-Under the box click on “Add Entry” which has a plus sign next to it.
-You will see a pop-up form.
-The top line asks for certification/program. If you are meeting the Antiracism, Anti-oppression, and Multiculturalism or Ministerial Ethics/Sexual Misconduct Prevention/Professional Boundaries requirement select those, otherwise select General Continuing Education.
-The next line asks for credit type, which is the methodology used (see the Continuing Education Standards linked above). It automatically defaults to the current date, which is fine.
-Under description, put in the name of the course, book or experience.
-Under credits, put in the hours (note that a continuing education (CE) hour is equal to 60 minutes of educational time).
-Nothing else needs to be filled out unless it is helpful to you in some way.
Courses taken on UUMA Learning Online will automatically be entered into your record by the system. If you have questions about entering in your hours, contact Allison King, Education Program Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Know that we are not adjudicating whether your entry is appropriate. We expect that you will consult the Continuing Education Standards and we trust that you are engaging in the education that meets your needs and that you are filling out the form with integrity. If you have questions about whether something fits, feel free to contact Rev. Darrick Jackson, Director of Education at email@example.com.
As an incentive to try the system out, we are offering two raffles!
Anyone who tracks at least 1 hour in the system by June 30, 2020 will be entered into a raffle for a free registration to the Institute for the Learning Ministry.
Anyone who tracks at least 20 hours by June 30, 2020 will be entered into a raffle to win registration and housing to the Institute for the Learning Ministry.
