Below is information regarding ONLINE courses that can qualify for CPE clinic credits for judges, as well as an explanation of the CPE Clinic approval form.
Also, I would like to remind you that whenever a Clinic (coaching and/or judging) is conducted in your state or region (excluding Regional Congresses), a Judging Accreditation CPE Clinic Approval form must be completed and sent to me. The clinic must also be sanctioned. If it is a state function, then the SACC and SJD must both approve the clinicians and sign the form. If it is a clinic offered to your region, then the RJD and either the RTCC or RACC should sign the approval form.
The National office keeps the forms on file as a record of clinics that can be used for CPE credit. When audits are done in the Fall, if anyone indicates they earned clinic credits from a state/regional clinic, then I verify by checking the CPE Approval forms to see if that clinic was approved and eligible for CPE credits. I am attaching the Clinic Approval form as well.
