Certificates are provided for all students on the class roster. At the end of your session, distribute certificates to students. Return unclaimed certificates in the materials envelope, along with your class attendance roster and class evaluations.
Students who registered on the day of your class will receive certificates in the mail.
Take attendance at each class, using the roster provided. In order to issue the correct number of hours, we must know how many hours the student attended class. We cannot award hours for classes that were not attended.

Return these materials after your SECOND TO LAST CLASS. We will prepare certificates to be handed out during the last class. Should a student miss the last class, return the certificate to the Continuing Education Office. We will adjust the number of hours earned and mail the certificate to the student.
To cut down on mailing expenses, return your class roster after your second to last class.
